Sundance SalonSpa Hosts Fundraising Shoe Drive
March through the end of April
WHAT: The public is invited to participate in a shoe drive to raise funds for Hoosier Environmental Council. Donations of gently worn, used and new shoes will be accepted. The amount of money raised is determined by the total weight of the shoes collected.
All donated shoes will be redistributed to microenterprise partners through Funds2Orgs, a for profit social enterprise, and used in developing nations for impoverished people to start their own businesses.
WHEN: March through the end of April
WHERE: Sundance SalonSpa
47 S Elm Street
Zionsville, IN 46077
DETAILS: In the US alone, over 600 million pairs of shoes are thrown away per year. The materials used to manufacture a pair of shoes are created from chemical compounds that will create health hazards if left to disintegrate openly or in landfills. By donating your gently worn, used and news shoes to the Hoosier Environmental Council, your shoes are given a second chance to make a difference.
