Sharpe Hospital Holding Shoe Drive to "Stomp Out Stigma"

Posted: Updated:
WESTON -

Sharpe Hospital in Weston is asking for community help to reduce the stigma involved with mental healthcare.

Hospital staff at Sharpe are holding a Stomp Out Stigma drive, collecting shoes from the community.

Those shoes will then be sent away to be cleaned and used where most needed, and the hospital will receive a payment for each pair they send.

Staff said they want to continue their successful effort to make mental healthcare better understood.

"We're seeing a lot more input from the community, a lot more support, especially with our community partnerships with different organizations," said Volunteer Services Coordinator Krista Adkins.

The drive runs through November 6.
