A mother-son duo have started a shoe drive out of their Canarsie home, giving donated sneakers to people who can't afford them.
Diana and Jeffrey Archer have been collecting shoes for years. Diana says she wanted to teach her son how to be selfless.
Jeffrey, a touring DJ, wants to take their shoe drive on the road.
"When I tour, I meet a lot of new people and I see the same thing in other states in other towns," he says. "So I thought, 'Why not start here and make something big?'"
The duo get their donations from Brooklyn residents and they give the shoes to those in need.
