WoofTrax has partnered with Funds2Orgs to manage the WoofTrax Shoes for Shelters & Rescues fundraiser – and we’re joining in by conducting a shoe drive!
We started collecting on October 5th, so our drive will run until December 3rd! For those 60 days, we will be collecting gently worn, used, or new shoes at our main adoption center (701 A Street, Wilmington, DE). DHA will earn funds based on the total weight of the shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will purchase all of the donated footwear. Those dollars will go right back to the animals in our care!
All donated shoes will be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise partners in developing nations. Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school! Now is your time to give back in so many ways, by simply getting rid of what you are no longer using!
Anyone can help by donating shoes during our public hours: Tuesday – Friday 12-7pm or Saturday & Sunday 12-5pm.
** If you know a volunteer or group collecting shoes, you are more than welcome to donate directly to them or at their designated location. **
