Fancy Farm Elem. launches shoe collection to raise money for PTA

GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

Fancy Farm Elementary will have a shoe collection drive starting on Sept. 28 to raise money for Fancy Farm PTA.

The FFES PTA will earn funds based on the number of pairs collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase all of the donated goods.

Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes at Fancy Farm Elementary School. All types of shoes are accepted, including tennis shoes, sandals, dress shoes, etc.

All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise partners in developing nations.

Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families.

"We are excited about our shoe drive," said Whitney Hayden of Fancy Farm School. "We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us and help those less fortunate become self-sufficient. It's a win-win for everyone."

By donating shoes to Fancy Farm Elementary Shoe Drive, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people's lives.
