Believe in the Arts launches shoe drive

Believe in The Arts is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser through Sept.15 to raise funds for fine arts scholarships.

Believe in the Arts will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit children of struggling families who wish to attend dance or tumbling classes.

Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes at To The Pointe Dance Company, Crossroads Autobody or Wahoo’s Diner.

All donated shoes will be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of small businesses partners and micro-entrepreneurs to help create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries.

Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.

To learn more, contact Lauren Cook at Believe in the Arts, 704-239-7086.
