By Jessie Kodish, Santa Clarita Contributor AlphaKidz International S.M.A.R.T. Academy, located in Canyon Country, has begun a shoe drive fundraiser to raise funds for their new school building. AlphaKidz 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 our new building. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes. All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise partners in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families. By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to AlphaKidz, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world. We are excited about our shoe drive. We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we raise money for our new building, and we have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It’s a win-win for everyone.
