EAST ORANGE, NJ - The youth group at Holy Name of Jesus, East Orange, are collecting gently used and new shoes for a fund-raiser to assist needy people. You can help by donating your sandals, heels, boots, athletic shoes/sneakers, casual and work shoes. They need men’s, women’s and children’s shoes of every size and color.
Don’t forget to ask your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers to donate too!
All donated shoes will be redistributed throughout a network of micro-enterprise partners in developing nations. These micro-enterprise partners help impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families. By donating gently used and new shoes, you will be making a difference by helping others and reducing the landfills.
