HOUSTON – Rainbow of love www.rainbowoflove.org is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser on September 30 – November 30 to raise funds for our annual Baskets for Babies Program. Rainbow of Love will earn funds based on the total number of used and new shoes collected. Those dollars will benefit Rainbow of Love’s Baskets for Babies Program for baby items that will be given to the parents of infants and toddlers in the Harris and Fort Bend County areas. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes to our Fondren office, 10103 Fondren Rd. Suite #474 Houston, TX 77096 M-F during the hours of 9-5p or Ft. Bend County office, 2714 Cypress Point Suite K Missouri City, TX 77459 Thursday during the hours of 1-5pm or schedule a pick up by calling (713) 779-8877.
All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping them create, maintain and grow small businesses 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. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.
“We are excited about our shoe drive,” said Adriana Rivas, Service Coordinator. “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 Rainbow of Love’s Baskets for Babies Program and those affected by Hurricane Harvey, and we have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to the Funds2Orgs, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
