September- November 2018:  Funds2Orgs State-wide Shoe Drive

START SAVING YOUR SHOES...

The Texas Chapter will be pairing with Funds2Orgs to set up shoe drives across the state.  We will be collecting gently worn, used and new shoes which will then be donated to Funds2Orgs, a non-profit organization that provides donated shoes to communities affected by disaster.  

After seeing the devastation to our coastal cities after Hurricane Harvey in 2017, we are proud to give back as we raise money to continue our fight for a cure.  While no official dates have been announced, our fundraising committee is hard at work securing locations across the state for these drives to be held.  Fundraising chair, Jovana Desarden and co-chair, Deborah Charlton anticipate to start these local campaigns this coming fall. 

 

To learn more about Funds2Orgs you may visit them on the web at www.funds2orgs.com
In the meantime, check back here or follow us on Facebook for announcements of upcoming drives near you. 

If you are interested in starting a shoe drive campaign in your city OR have a local business that would like to participate in collections, please email Jovana at sascleroderma@gmail.com for more info.
