Boots for Families

Boots for Families Logo


For the past decade, Lamey Wellehan has been collecting gently worn footwear for Maine families in need. We collect about 10,000 pairs annually and partner with local schools and agencies to ensure they reach a Maine family in need. During the winter months, the need for warm boots is great. This year, the need has risen exponentially due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We need your help to ensure Maine kids and their families have the boots they need to enjoy winter in Maine.


It is easy to help those in need

You can safely donate your gently worn boots in any of our six retail locations. Bring your outgrown boots with you on your next shopping visit and place them in one of our boot collection bins.

We’ve made it even easier this year with outdoor receptacles for drive-up donations, seven days a week. We will ensure your donation reaches a Maine family.

Your kindness is appeciated

We thank you for your donations, your support will ensure Maine children and their families will make it through a Maine winter with warm and dry feet.
