URGENT SHOE PROJECT UPDATE:
Amid Payless store closures, we are seeking new corporate partner for our Annual 'Shoe Project' LEARN MORE
HELP US CONTINUE TO HELP OUR COMMUNITY
Annual Shoe Project provides shoes to underprivileged children within our school district. In 2015 we provided on average 50 pairs of shoes and socks to 14 elementary schools in and around Plant City. For 2016 and 2017, with the funds provided by our ongoing fund-raisers and wonderful sponsors, we were able to provide 45 pairs of shoes and socks to now 15 different schools. In 2018, due to incredible community and sponsorship participation, we were able to add one more school to our list making this our most successful year at 16 schools!
We are honored by the ongoing partnership with Payless Shoes, where all the shoes and socks are purchased, Payless provides the club with additional funding and additional discounts to ensure that we are able to purchase all the shoes needed. We also have the privilege of partnering with Happy Souls Sock Ministry, who generously provide 6 pairs of socks per student.
Our additional sponsors that we would like to thank for the success of our 2018 Annual Shoe Project are James Hardie Industries, Gordon Food Service, Star Distribution Systems, Unity in the Community and again the Happy Souls Sock Ministry.
The 2018's project was under the leadership of Mackensi Beers, who, along with other Juniors members, made this the best year yet!
