St. Andrew Evangelical Lutheran Church Launches Shoe Collection Drive to Raise Money for World Hunger and their Capital Improvement Fund
(Click image below to download larger PDF image)
St. Andrew recently launched its gently used shoe collection drive to raise funds for World Hunger,
a mission of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and for St. Andrew’s Capital Improvement Fund.
St. Andrew will earn funds based on the number of pairs of shoes collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase
all of the donated goods. Anyone can help by donating gently worn used or new shoes at 1125 Stafford
Avenue in Bristol. Shoe donations will also support microenterprises in developing nations and reduce
the amount of refuse that goes into landfills.
Shoes can be donated Monday through Friday at the church. If the office is not open, please deposit
your shoes in the shed on the CCD Center side of the parking lot. Please secure the shoes in shopping
bags or in other types of plastic bags which can be tied before you put them into the shed.
Other drop-off sites are Vallee Shoe Services, 182 West Street, Bristol and Planet Fitness, 99 Farmington
Avenue, Bristol. Special Saturday collections will be held at the church from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on
September 24th, October 8th & 29th. Free coffee, tea, hot chocolate and cookies will be served. The drive
will be on-going until November 15th.
Your Old Shoes=New Opportunities for people from underdeveloped nations around the world.
