Alhambra High School Launches Shoe Drive Fundraiser

Raising Money for PTSA

 

Alhambra High School PTSA is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser, September 11 through November 10, to raise funds for PTSA Programs. Alhambra PTSA will earn funds based on the total weight of gently worn, used, and new shoes collected, and Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit students and teachers at Alhambra High School. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used, and new shoes at Alhambra High School, local farmers’ markets on Sundays, MEF Run on September 30, and home football games.

 

All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping them create, maintain, and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunities and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sale of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe, and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send her son to law school.

 

"We are excited about our shoe drive," said PTSA President Laura Patrick. We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we raise money for our school and have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It's a win-win for everyone.”

 

Donations of gently worn, used and new shoes to the Alhambra High School PTSA give shoes a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
