Edmonson County High School Band Fundraising Shoe Drive ends on 08/01/2018, and still need shoes to meet their quota.
The public is invited to participate in a shoe drive to raise funds for the ECHS Band. Donations of gently worn, used and new shoes will be accepted. The amount of money raised is determined by the total weight of the shoes collected.
All donated shoes will be redistributed to micro-enterprise partners through Funds2Orgs, a for profit social enterprise, and used in developing nations for impoverished people to start their own businesses.
In the US alone, over 600 million pairs of shoes are thrown away per year. The materials used to manufacture a pair of shoes are created from chemical compounds that will create health hazards if left to disintegrate openly or in landfills. By donating your gently worn, used and news shoes to the Edmonson County High School Band, your shoes are given a second chance to make a difference.
Drop offs can be made from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday thru Friday until 08/01/18 at Edmonson County High School in the band room.
