MOAMA police are asking people to kick off their shoes for a cause.

People in the twin towns can donate any unwanted boots and shoes for homeless people during homeless week, which runs from today to Sunday.

Deniliquin police Inspector Jy Brown said officers would be donating their old boots but the community could get involved too.

‘‘The feedback we get from the homeless people we deal with is it’s the simple things that make a difference,’’ he said.

‘‘We might not be able to help with something like housing but we can help with shoes or boots.

‘‘People can throw them in the new bin at Moama and we will donate them to Mission Australia.’’

The Deniliquin Local Area Command, which Moama is part of, is taking part in the state-wide boot drive.

Boots or shoes need to be in good condition and can be donated to any police station within the command. Collection points are at Deniliquin, Finley, Moama, Hay and Balranald police stations. Shoes must be laced together so they stay together.
