Kicks For Kindness Shoe Drive
Sara Satullo from Lehigh Valley Live shared our story! Thank you Sara! Here’s how your old shoes can help pay off student lunch debt in the Lehigh Valley.
Kindness is Magic Inc. partnered with 35 schools in the Bethlehem Area School District, East Penn School District, and Saucon Valley School District to collect gently used and new shoes from September through November 24, 2018. Thanks to the support of the Lehigh Valley community we collected 7,900 pairs (8,246 lbs) of gently used and new shoes raising $3,298.40! Funds raised by the charity will go towards student lunch debt in these districts. All donated shoes will be redistributed to microenterprise partners through Funds2Orgs, a social enterprise used in developing nations for impoverished people to start their own businesses.
Thank you to all of our community drop off locations who helped make this drive successful!
