With your incredible support, we met our goal of 100 bags of shoes for our shoe drive! That’s over 2500 pairs of shoes that all came from our community. WOW! We cannot thank those who donated enough.
The shoes were picked up on January 29, and filled a 26′ truck full, with 111 huge bags of shoes holding 25 pairs in each! Funds2Orgs wil now distribute the shoes to developing nations. There, the shoes will be given to individuals or small groups who sell the shoes as a “micro-business”. These micro-businesses provide work and a means of support in areas where work can be scarce.
Who would’ve thought that the shoes at the back of your closet would help our animals and families on other continents? Now there’s something you can feel good about. 🙂
