HANDS ON CHILDREN’S MUSEUM
Launches Shoe Collection Drive to raise money for A NEW ROOF
Shoe donations will also support micro-enterprises in developing nations and reduce what goes into landfills in Jacksonville, Florida. Hands On Children’s Museum is conducting a shoe collection drive in March, April & May 2015 to raise funds for a new roof. “Hands On” will earn funds based on the number of pairs collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase all of the donated goods. Those dollars will benefit “Hands On “with a new roof. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes at 8580 Beach Blvd. Jacksonville, Florida.
All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise partners in developing nations. Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.
“We are excited about our shoe drive," said Trisha Whitmire, Hands On Coordinator. "We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like donate to us and help those less fortunate become self-sufficient. It’s a win-win for everyone,” added Trisha Whitmire.
By donating shoes to the Hands On Children’s Museum Roof Drive, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives.
Local organizations interested in learning more about conducting a shoe drive of their own can visit Funds2orgs.com and/ or handsonchildrensmuseum.org.
