Need some good news? Look no further. This summer, nonprofit Teenagers in Charge is continuing their mission they’ve been on since 1995 to serve Philly teenagers in homeless shelters. They’re doing so with a goal of collecting 1,000 pairs of sneakers to give back to teens in need in the city.

“It’s important because, when they leave their homes, they only leave with what is on their feet and what is on their back,” founder Judith McDaniel said. “So we want to make their displacement a little more comfortable — just in case they need to run, just in case they need to run fast.”

A pretty amazing cause and a good way to clean out some space in the closet this summer.
