The Shoe Drive fundraiser for the Great Swamp Conservancy (GCS) is still collecting new, slightly used shoes, boots, slippers, sandals, high heels until March 14.
Three winning goals of this fundraiser are: to raise funds for the Great Swamp Conservancy’s environmental programming, help others in developing nations start micro-businesses that will create a sustainable income for their families, and recycle, repurpose and reuse; keeping these shoes out of our landfills. Handy drop off locations are: Canastota, Chittenango, Sherrill, Oneida and Bridgeport Libraries.
The Nature Center has collected 1,225 pairs with the help of many volunteers, 1275 are still needed to meet the goal of 2,500.
Call the GSC office if you need shoes picked up or if your business or family would like a collection bin with information. 315-697-2950 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
