TWRC Wildlife Center Hosts a Fundraising Shoe Drive
January 14th - March 14th
Help raise funds for TWRC Wildlife Center by donating your gently-worn, used and new shoes!
TWRC is conducting a Shoe-Drive Fundraiser, from January 14th to March 14th, to raise funds for TWRC Wildlife Center. Our goal is to collect 2,500 pairs and anyone can help by collecting and donating gently-worn, used and new shoes. Shoes may be dropped off at TWRC Wildlife Center, 10801 Hammerly Blvd. Suite #200 Houston, TX 77043 (in Spring Branch), daily from 10 AM to 2 PM. TWRC will receive a fundraising check, based on the total weight of the shoes collected!
All donated shoes will then be redistributed to micro-entrepreneurs for re-sale; helping them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited.
Please spread the word to your neighbors, friends, teammates and colleagues and help us reach our fundraising goal!
