FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Penns Valley Music Boosters Launches Shoe Collection Drive to Raise money for Band and Band Front Uniforms
Shoe donations will also support micro-enterprises in developing nations and reduce what goes into landfills
Spring Mills, PA, March 1, 2019: Penns Valley Music Boosters is conducting a shoe collection drive on March 1st – April 30th to raise funds for Band and Band Front Uniforms. The PV Music Boosters will earn funds based on the number of pairs collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase all the donated goods. Those dollars will benefit the student's uniform fund. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes at the following locations: American Legion Post 779, Centre Hall; Weaver’s Store, Spring Mills; Shades of Red Salon, Aaronsburg; Old Gregg School Community Center, Spring Mills; Centre Hall Library, Centre Hall.
All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise 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 Amy Smith, Music Booster President. "We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us and help those less fortunate become self-sufficient. It’s a win-win for everyone,” added Amy.
By donating shoes to the Penns Valley Music Boosters, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives.
