Would you ever think that your old shoes could replace old plumbing or paint a reception area? Well they can and here’s how. The Chamber is participating in a fundraiser where there is nothing to buy or sell, all we need is your support and your old shoes. We are looking for community members to help support us as we raise money to make much needed building repairs, by agreeing to collect 25 pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes between July 9 and September 10. Here’s how you do it:
Start in your family’s closets and gather pairs of shoes that you’ve out grown, are out of style, or out of season. If you have 25 pairs, great, if not please ask your neighbors and/or co-workers to do the same. These shoes will help support our program as well as individuals in developing nations like Ghana, Haiti and Bolivia. Connect with me to get them picked up or you can drop them off at these locations:
