Chicas Latinas de Sacramento’s Annual “Starting Off on the Right Foot” Shoe Drive is in full swing! This year we’re sponsoring Del Paso Heights Elementary School, with a goal to provide every child at the school with a new pair of shoes for the new school year (… that’s OVER 400 shoes). Can you contribute to a child’s school preparedness?
Why Shoes? When we asked school staff members what students are most in need of when starting the new school year, we were simply told, “shoes.” Shoes that fit and shoes in working condition… free of holes and torn soles. Back-to-school shoes, a basic need to most, are a luxury item to these children.
How to Give: Our Sacramento drop-off locations (including our home at Capsity) are currently accepting NEW shoe donations (through Sept. 16th) and monetary donations can be made here! Any amount helps, $10 is a new pair of shoes.) More info: http://bit.ly/CLShoeDrive2016
Wanna hang? Chicas Latinas de Sacramento is hosting a Shoe Drop-Off Happy Hour event on Aug. 24, 6-8pm, at Oak Park Brewing Co. (3514 Broadway, Sacramento, CA 95818). Bring your shoe and/or monetary donations, enjoy some eats, drinks, live music, special guests… and hang with us! Stay in the know, join our Facebook Event.
*Monetary donations will go 100% towards the purchase of new shoes for students at Del Paso Elementary. Tax ID: 46-1048619
