Bryant Students Collecting New & Gently Used Shoes
Bryant Middle School is conducting a collection drive through Dec. 20 to raise funds to support a variety of school enrichment projects. Bryant will earn money based on the number of shoes collected. Funds2Orgs, the leading shoe drive fundraising for-profit social enterprise in North America, will purchase all of the donated pairs. Those dollars will benefit projects selected by Bryant staff and students.
Anyone can help by donating gently worn or new shoes. Shoes can be dropped off at Bryant during school hours or, to arrange a shoe pickup, email BryantPinkShirt@yahoo.com.
The school’s goal is to collect 7,500 pairs of shoes.
Shoe donations also will support micro-enterprises in developing nations and reduce what goes into landfills.
All donated shoes will be redistributed by Funds2Orgs which helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families. (www.funds2orgs.com/)
By donating shoes to Bryant’s Drive, the shoes will be given a “second chance” and make a difference in people’s lives. For more information, email Kevin Renko at Renkok@dearbornschools.org.
