Oakwood Adventist Academy 8th Grade Students Have Launched a Shoe Drive Fundraiser to Raise Money for Their Class Trip!
Students will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit their class trip. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes at the Oakwood Adventist Academy (elementary school) front office.
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 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 very excited about our shoe drive. We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we will raise money for our trip and also have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to the the Oakwood Adventist Academy 8th grade class, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
