LOCK HAVEN – Lock Haven Catholic School is holding a fundraiser to raise money for the school.

LHCS will earn funds based on the total weight of lightly worn, used and new pairs of shoes collected. Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the shoes collected. These dollars will benefit the school and its fantastic students. Everyone can help by donating lightly worn, used and new shoes to the school.

All donated shoes will then be redistributed through the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs to help them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunities and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sale of shoes raised at shoe fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families. A budding entrepreneur in Haiti has even earned enough to send her son to law school.

“We are excited about our shoe reader,” said Brittany Phoenix, administrative assistant/fundraising consultant for the school. “We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets that they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we raise funds for our school and have the chance to help families in developing countries who need help. economic opportunities. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

By donating lightly worn, used and new shoes to Lock Haven Catholic School, shoes will get a second chance and make a difference in the lives of people around the world.

Shoes can be dropped off at the school, 311 W. Water Street, during school hours, Monday through Friday. There will also be collection boxes located in the Sainte-Agnès and Immaculée Conception churches. For any questions, please contact Brittany Phoenix at [email protected], or 570-748-7252.
