Accelerated Schools Hosts Fundraising Shoe Drive on August 15-Oct. 15, 2019
WHAT: The public is invited to participate in a shoe drive to raise funds for Accelerated Schools. 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.
WHEN: August 15-Oct. 15, 2019 drop off anytime during regular business hours or call to schedule an appointment.
WHERE: Accelerated Schools, 2160 S. Cook St., Denver, CO 80210
DETAILS: 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 new shoes to Accelerated Schools, your shoes are given a second chance to make a difference.
