Would you ever think that your old shoes could make a difference? Well, they can and here’s how. Our team is participating in a fundraiser where there is nothing to buy or sell, all we need is your support and your old shoes. We are looking for community members to help support us by agreeing to collect 25 pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes in the next 4 weeks.
Here’s how you do it:
Start in your family’s closets and gather pairs of shoes that you’ve out grown, are out of style, or out of season. If you have 25 pairs, great, if not please ask your neighbors and/or co-workers to do the same. These shoes will help support our program as well as individuals in developing nations like Ghana, Haiti and Bolivia. You can drop your collected shoes off at the YMCA of Indiana County. Can we count on you? Remember, every pair that you collect helps.
