Hope House Foundation Launches "Kick Homelessness to the Curb" Shoe Drive Fundraiser
By: Hope House Foundation
Hope House decided on a Funds2Orgs shoe drive fundraiser because not only does it allow the foundation to raise much needed funds for the provision of temporary housing to those in need in the Lake Norman community, it also contributes to Funds2Orgs mission to help micro-entrepreneurs 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 these entrepreneurs' families.
"We are excited about our shoe drive," said Debbie O'Handley, Executive Director of the Hope House Foundation. "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 Hope House and we have the chance to help families in developing nations. It's a win-win for everyone."
Donation bins will be placed in high profile, high-traffic areas throughout the Lake Norman area. Donors can also drop off shoes at the Hope House in Huntersville, located at 15604 Northcross Drive.
