Soles for Songs

Soles for Songs Shoe Drive, March 1, 2018 – April 30, 2018

The Redeemer Choirs are conducting a shoe drive and need your help! We’re raising money by collecting gently worn, used and new shoes to support our 2018 Music and Mission Tour to Croatia and Slovenia. We’ve partnered with Funds2Orgs, the leading shoe drive fundraising company in the country, and the shoes we collect will be shipped to small business owners (micro-entrepreneurs) in developing nations around the world. The Redeemer Choirs will receive a stipend for the collected shoes.

What we need you to do is bring us your old (but still useful) shoes! Donation boxes will soon appear around the Parish House to collect donated shoes. You can also turn in shoes to any choir member (adult or child). Some things to keep in mind…we can’t use damaged or worn out shoes. There has to be some life left in them. If the sole is worn out or coming off a shoe, we can’t use it. If the soles are melted or distorted, the shoes won’t be accepted by Funds2Orgs. Rule of thumb, would you give them to a needy friend? We will collect all types of footwear - house shoes/slippers, flip flops, sandals, cleats, sneakers, dress shoes, boots, snow boots, etc. The only things we aren't collecting are roller skates/blades and ice skates.

We also need your help getting out the word about our Soles for Songs Shoe Drive. Please let your friends, family and co-workers know about the drive.  Contact Susan Van Allen if you have any suggestions about businesses and schools we should contact for collection box placement. We will also pick up shoes from other locations as requested.
