Plainfield Community Outreach (PCO) is holding a Shoe Drive to raise money for Grace’s Kitchen soup kitchen and the PCO afterschool and English language learning programs. If PCO can collect 2,500 pairs of new or gently used shoes of all types, it will earn a donation of $1,000.
Funds2Orgs takes the shoes and, in turn, distributes them to micro-entrepreneurs in developing countries around the world, such as Ghana, Haiti, India, Indonesia, Honduras, Tanzania, Togo, and Nicaragua, to help them create sustainable economic and commercial opportunities for themselves by selling the shoes in the local market.
To donate shoes, bring them to PCO’s offices at 600 Cleveland Avenue in Plainfield (near the corner of Sixth Street and Cleveland Avenue), lower level. Please also ask your friends and family to participate – they can bring them to the PCO offices or mail them to the address below.
