St. Matthew’s Seeks: Your Old Shoes

We have a VERY EXCITING announcement of an amazingly easy and beautifully-hearted fundraiser that will benefit St. Matthew’s Catholic School.  The fundraiser begins July 30th, and runs the entire 2018 – 2019 school year!  To help, all you have to do to make it a success is: donate your old shoes!

WHAT: Two St. Matthew’s moms discovered Funds2Orgs and decided to bring Funds2Orgs to St. Matthew’s.

HOW: It’s simple! Donate your gently worn, used and new shoes!

WHY: We will not only earn funds for St. Matthew’s, but ALL donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. *Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping 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.*

We will be collecting shoes throughout the 2018-2019 school year, so if you’re not quite ready to part with your summer sandals, there will be MANY opportunities to do so in the coming months!  We need to collect 25,000 pairs of shoes in order to make this fundraiser work, so this is a massive undertaking. But, as a community of faith, we know this is an achievable goal. Why? Because with God, all things are possible

PS: For every pair of shoes you donate on 7/30 and 8/1, you have a chance to win two Notre Dame football tickets!  (just bring your shoes to St. Matt’s Cafeteria on 7/30 and 8/1)
