SOLES FOR SOULS: A Library Fundraiser -- and it won't cost you a cent!!!
Over 600 million old shoes wind up in landfills every year and the average household has 15 unneeded pairs. Help the library raise money for new books by donating your gently used or new shoes. The shoe drive will last through May 31st, 2017. Tell your family and friends. We have the potential to earn $1,000 or more. Think of how many new books this can buy! Our goal is to collect 3,500 pairs of shoes. Last year, we collected about 3,000. I know we can do this! If you are cleaning out closets this winter break, please put aside those shoes and start bringing them in beginning in January, 2017.
If you own a business or know of a business that would be willing to collect shoes for our fundraiser, please contact Mrs. Martinez in the library. Email is email@example.com If you belong to a club, please consider asking them to help you collect shoes. My Edgewood Lions Club members collected over 150 pairs of shoes for our drive last year --- and they have promised to beat this amount!
