|Shoe Drive Fundraiser|
|Dates:||Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - Friday, May 31, 2019|
|Title:||Shoe Drive Fundraiser|
|Description:||The Forest Hills Varsity & Junior High Ranger Cheerleading Teams are conducting a shoe drive fundraiser now through May 10th, 2019, to raise funds for our upcoming season. The Forest Hills Cheerleaders will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used & new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit the Varsity & Junior High Cheerleaders at Forest Hills.
Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used & new shoes at the 9 following business locations:
Forest Hills Elementary School
Forest Hills Junior/Senior High School
Adams Township Fire/Rescue 82
Forest Hills Veterinary
Bella's at Coal Heritage Center, in Windber, PA
Flood City Flooring
Spinos Family Chiropractic
South Fork First United Methodist Church
Stager's Store - Portage
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 & grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity & jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in our shoe drive will be used to feed, clothe & house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send her son to law school.
We are 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 raise money for our upcoming cheer season, and we have the chance to help families in developing nation's who need economic opportunities. It's a win-win for everyone.|
