McFarland Girls Basketball Launches Shoe Drive Fundraiser
to Raise Money for The Girls Program

McFarland Girls Basketball is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser on October 1st thru December 31st to raise funds for McFarland Girls Basketball. McFarland Girls Basketball will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit McFarland Girls Basketball. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes at ANY of the McFarland Schools, Associated Bank, Pick n Save and McFarland State Bank.
All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.
"We are excited about our shoe drive," said Coach Mallegni, head basketball coach. "We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we raise money for McFarland Girls Basketball, and we have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It's a win-win for everyone.”
By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to the McFarland Girls Basketball Program, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
