Bellinda Williams is embarking on a 90-day shoe drive with the help of a non-profit called Funds2Org.com. If they can collect 100 bags of shoes with 25 pairs each, the non-profit will donate $3,000 to the Skyline High School PTSA for college scholarships according to an article from NBC DFW published on November 9th. In it they say:
“COVID-19 has forced the school to get creative on ways to fundraise, simply because they can’t gather in large groups. Skyline High School is still collecting shoes for the fundraiser. If you would like to donate, test 214-538-1090 before dropping off donations at the school.”
More than that, collecting shoes wasn’t something chosen at random. The shoes are also going to a charitable cause according to an article from MSN published on November 10th. In it they say:
“ ‘It’s more than just helping us though. They take those shoes to underdeveloped countries like Haiti and they allow those people to set up their own businesses to sell those shoes and make money,’ Williams said.”
If you have an unused or used but decent pair of shoes lying around the home, consider donating to the cause to help both underprivileged kids in Haiti and aspiring college students here in Dallas.
