Faris collecting shoes as fund raiser

FarisThe Faris Elementary School PTO is collecting gently worn or new shoes as a fund raiser through Dec. 2.

The shoes are collected and will be processed by Funds2Orgs. The company, in turn, will write the Faris PTO a check for the donation, based on the total weight of the shoes donated.

Funds2Orgs works with microenterprises in 25 developing countries from Central America to the Far East. These microenterprises are local small business entrepreneurs around the world that purchase the shoes for pennies on the dollar. The shoes are then sold to retail customers in their local countries for a fraction of their original price in North America.
