All year long

WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

Some help from Mom, Dad or a grown up is required.

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

It is very important to us to have young children get involved so that you can see how much you can help people in need. Your collecting new sneakers and new socks for us will make it possible for us to give more children the footwear they need to be able to go to school and have fun after school!

DESCRIPTION

Hold new sneaker and new sock drives at your school, after-school club, like Girl Scouts or Boy Scouts, and your religious schools.

The new sneakers and socks will be given to children living in homeless shelters near your community. These sneakers and socks will make it easier for kids to have sneakers that fit them so they can go to school, play sports, and have fun outside!


ITEMS NEEDED

1. A Donation Box: Collection boxes are sturdy and reliable cardboard boxes or plastic bins. You can even decorate your collection box!

2. Brochures from Gotta Have Sole that explain where these socks and sneakers are going. You can print these from GottaHaveSole.org


SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
