NAMI Shoe Drive
Would you think that your old shoes could help support NAMI’s programs and services?
They can, and here’s how:
NAMI PBC is having a fundraiser where there is nothing to buy or sell. All we need is your support and your old shoes. We are looking for community members to help support us by agreeing to collect at least 25 pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes over the next 10 weeks.
Here’s how you do it:
Start in your family’s closets and gather shoes that you have outgrown, are out of style, or you no longer want to wear. If you have 25 pairs, great. If not, ask your neighbors, co-workers to do the same.
What’s up with the shoes?
NAMI PBC will be paid 40 cents a pound for the shoes!! The shoes will be redistributed through a network of microenterprise partners in developing nations like Ghana, Haiti, and Bolivia. They help individuals start, maintain, and grow businesses so they are better able to be self-sufficient.
