SMART Shoe Drive Fundraiser

Mon, 10/16/2017

Southern Columbia Middle School is launching a Shoe Drive Fundraiser to raise money for SMART. 

SMART will earn funds based on the total weight of pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected.  These collected shoes will be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network, which benefits small businesses and people in developing countries.

We are excited about this shoe drive and we know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate.  It is a great opportunity to raise funds for our school and give back to a great cause.
