St. Vincent de Paul School
Hosts Fundraising Shoe Drive
Now thru January 31, 2021
The parish is invited to participate in a shoe drive to raise funds for First Grade Service Project and to Raise Funds for Tuition Assistance. Donations of gently worn, used and new shoes will be accepted. The amount of money raised is determined by the total weight of the shoes collected.
All donated shoes will be redistributed to micro enterprise partners through Funds2Orgs, a for profit social enterprise, and used in developing nations for impoverished people to start their own businesses.
In the US alone, over 600 million pairs of shoes are thrown away per year. The materials used to manufacture a pair of shoes are created from chemical compounds that will create health hazards if left to disintegrate openly or in landfills. By donating your gently worn, used and news shoes to the First Grade Service Project and to Raise Funds for Tuition Assistance, your shoes are given a second chance to make a difference.
Shoes can be dropped off at the School Office, Monday - Thursday from 8:30 am to 3pm.
