Karl-Anthony Towns Announces Inaugural Shoe Drive

MINNEAPOLIS/ST. PAUL – Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Karl-Anthony Towns today announced that he has partnered with The Salvation Army to host a shoe drive to help those in need of new shoes. Beginning today and ending on Friday, January 29, Towns is inviting all fans to bring new and unused shoes to the Target Center Box Office.

"Many people are in need of new shoes,” said Towns. “With the support of The Salvation Army and Wolves fans, I’m hoping we can make a difference by supplying new shoes to those in need of a new pair of shoes this winter.”

As a thank you to those who donate, Towns will be supplying tickets to the Timberwolves' Feb. 8 game vs. the New Orleans Pelicans and the Feb. 22 game vs. the Boston Celtics. Fans will receive a voucher redeemable for two tickets to one of these games for each pair of new and unused shoes they donate (first come, first served basis while supplies last). Towns and The Salvation Army will be accepting new and unused shoe donations at the Target Center Box Office at 600 First Avenue North, Minneapolis, through Friday, January 29.
