Junior Class Fundraiser
The junior class is collecting shoes for their fundraiser this year.  Please bring in any gently worn shoes you are willing to part with and place them in the bins located in the bus lobby and the main entrance.  You can also bring them to room 143 or room 239.  Our goal is to collect 2,500 pairs of shoes. If you can ask any friends or family if they would be willing to donate it would be greatly appreciated.  Shoes can be any type or size.
All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs to help them create, maintain, and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe, and house their families.
