Shoe Drive Fundraiser to Raise Money for All Abilities Community Playground

Collecting Now Through November 23rd!
The Whitin Community Center (WCC) is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser from September 24th- November 23rd to raise funds for the Community Playground Project. The WCC will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected. Those dollars will benefit the WCC’s Community Playground Project. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes in the WCC’s Lobby. All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs to help them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales 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 to her son to law school.
"We are excited about our shoe drive," said Sarah Lawson, Director of Marketing & Events. "We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets that could be donated, I know I personally do. By doing so, we raise money for our Community Playground Project, and we have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It's a win-win for everyone.” The WCC’s Community Playground Project will encourage everyone to go outside and play no matter what age or ability! The WCC’s Blackstone Valley Children's Place (BVCP) believes that interacting with nature and enjoying physical activity is an experience that should be enjoyed by all residents in our community. Not only does it provide exercise and fresh air, but the opportunity for social interactions. As a fulfillment of our mission, this playground will not be just for children, but for people of all ages who want to improve their health and wellness. The goal of the Community Playground Project will be safety, dignity and the independence for all abilities and ages to enjoy!
By donating your gently worn, used and new shoes to the WCC the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world. Only have 1 shoe, not a problem, your donation will still be accepted!
