Two off-campus locations include: OSF Medical Group – College Avenue (1701 E. College Avenue, Bloomington) and the Center for Health at Fort Jesse (2200 Fort Jesse Road, Normal). 

A drive thru drop-off will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., August 11 through 15, in the parking lot of OSF St. Joseph Medical Center. 

Over the past 11 years, OSF has collected more than 15,500 pairs of shoes – all donated to Home Sweet Home Ministries.
