MACHAO is running our second Shoe Drive! Join us in getting a head start on collecting funds for the 2017 Service Trip.
Did you know … In the US alone, approximately 630 million pairs of shoes are thrown away per year. The materials used to manufacture a pair of shoes are created from chemical compounds that will create health hazards if left to disintegrate openly or in landfills. By donating your gently worn used and news shoes you are helping the environment, decluttering your closet, supporting micro-enterprise to vendors in developing nations, and the funds we receive will help us purchase new shoes for each child at the orphanage.
Our goal: To collect 10,000 pairs of shoes by Saturday, May 20, 2017. Feel free to drop them off or bring them on Volunteer Day on May 20, 2017. Volunteers will be present to receive your shoes, tie them in pairs, bag them in quantities of 25 with the hopes of putting together 400 bags or 10,000. Help us help the children of MACHAO. Invite your family, neighbors, co-workers to participate, Great project if you’re a boy scout or girl scout or need community hours.
