A NOTE FROM THE OUTREACH TEAM: Dear Peace Family, We’ve worked hard reaching out to folks across Warren and the surrounding community asking for gently worn used and new shoes. As of today (4-21-17), we have collected 25 bags (25 pairs per bag) of our goal of 100 bags. You can help us without spending a cent! It’s quick and easy to help us hit our goal! It’s quick and easy to help us hit our goal. Your shoe donation is vital. Can we count on you? It’s a Win-Win … we earn funds from collecting shoes as we get paid on a per-pound basis, and the shoes get distributed to other developing nations for income/micro-enterprises and repurposing. It will also diminish what ends up in a landfill! This fundraiser will help our school tremendously toward the further education needs of our students. Please go through your closets and if you haven’t worn them in a year or two, donate them to us! Could you please let me know if we can count on you to collect 25 pairs of gently worn shoes, and recruit a friend to do the same in the next four weeks? Ask them to collect 25 pairs of gently worn used shoes, kids or adult size. Shoes can be dropped off at Peace (11701 E. 12 Mile, Warren, 12/Hoover) or call 586-751-8010 to arrange a pickup. There’s a Facebook post on our Peace Facebook page – Please share it to get the word out! On behalf of all of our team members: Thank you for making a difference.
