St. Mary of the Hills School

PTO Launches Shoe Drive!







St. Mary of the Hills School PTO has partnered with Funds2Orgs to collect gently worn, used or new shoes. All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise partners in developing nations. Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa.


St. Mary of the Hills School PTO will earn money based on the number of pairs of shoes donated as Funds2Orgs will purchase all the donated shoes. By donating shoes, you not only create space in your home, you give these shoes a second chance and make a difference in people's lives



How can you help? 


  • Clean out your closets and ask friends and family to do the same.   


  • Bring in all gently worn, used or new pairs of shoes. Either tie laces together or place a rubber band around each pair of  shoes.Place each bag of shoes into the collection bin outside the Office.


  • Be sure to include your child's name and class on the outside of the bag. We will be keeping track of how many shoes each class collects.


  • The classroom with the largest number of shoes donated will receive an Ice Cream Sundae Party.



Our drive runs from now until the end of February 2016.


Any questions, thoughts or ideas to make this shoe drive a success??
