Donate shoes and help our biology students

Posted on: September 2, 2016

Here's your chance to reduce clutter and support an amazing opportunity for Finneytown students -- a spring break biology trip to the Grand Canyon with teacher Matt Breines.

The Secondary PTA is holding a shoe drive, with contributions helping to reduce costs for the Grand Canyon trip. And the shoes you donate help aspiring small-business owners in developing nations.

To help, simply drop off your gently used shoes at 8780 Cavalier Drive, in front of the garage.

Gently worn, used and new shoes are used in developing nations to help impoverished people start, maintain and grow their micro-enterprises. Collected shoes are shipped to these micro-entrepreneurs where they are cleaned and repaired. Because of this opportunity, individuals are able to feed, clothe and house their families.
