Partnering for Good – Hollis BSA Troop 465 Shoe Drive
Thank you to our YMCA members who graciously donated nearly 400 pairs of shoes supporting the Hollis BSA Troop 465.
The all-girl troop of 20 girls collected new and gently worn running shoes, soccer cleats, basketball sneakers, flats, boots, casual and dress shoes, boots and more! There were collection boxes in the lobbies of our three facility branches during the months of March and April.
The shoes collected in this shoe drive fundraiser will be exported to various countries in South America, Central America & Africa. There, The Fundraising Company works with businesses where they create thousands of jobs for micro-entrepreneurs who repair, resell and/or re-purpose the shoes as a means of supporting their families.
If you have shoe or boot donations, the troop is still collecting through June 9. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
