Shoe Drive Charity

My chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha is participating in a shoe drive to raise money for our educational foundation. We are partnering with Funds2Orgs in this venture where they will collect the shoes from us and give them to underprivileged countries. We have a goal of collecting 100 bags (33 gallon bags) of gently worn shoes.  Any type of shoe is acceptable as long as it’s not falling apart so sneakers, boots, high heels, men, women, and children shoes are also acceptable.  If we achieve our goal of 100 bags, the Foundation will receive $1000 from Funds2Orgs to assist with our scholarship.

Information on Funds2orgs can be found here: https://funds2orgs.com/
