BEVERLY HILLS — Foster2Adoption, Inc. is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser until July 26, to raise funds for local foster families.
Foster2Adoption, Inc. will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit our local community. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes at the YMCA in Lecanto.
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 and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.
“We are excited about our shoe drive,” said Dana Floyd, Founder/President of F2A. “We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we raise money to help our local foster families, and we have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to the Foster2Adoption, Inc., the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
Foster2Adoption, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation formed to provide services and support to families of foster and adoptive children. The agency will provide supplies, support, referrals, direction, scholorships and any other services needed to help families transition smoothly.
