As proud members of the NYC community, the Wearable Collections team would like to tip our hats to those who give their all to provide an education to the children of the city. We have children, siblings, spouses and parents who have all been nourished by our city’s system. Being so involved in the community, we are also very aware of the amount of money it takes to keep lots of incredible programming afloat. While we don’t have a solution that can sweep away these problems in one fell swoop, we do what we can to help in our little way.
A shoe and sneaker drive is a seamless way to engage your community, help declutter closets and raise funds for your school all at the same time. We make it so easy you will wonder why you haven’t done it before. We are certain a shoe drive will become a mainstay as part of your fundraising tools.
Please go to our website and fill out the form on the right side of this page to host a drive A representative of the company will contact you to answer any questions you may have and to finalize details for the drive.
Next the fun part –
1.You promote the drive to the families in your school.
2. We arrive on the pre-determined date to pick up the collected shoes.
3. We weigh the shoes and cut your PTA a check for .25 cents/lb
We have seen schools raise anywhere from $50 to $1000 on a drive. So please come along and help us keep shoes out of landfills while keeping them in circulation. There is someone out there that would still love to walk a mile in those shoes.
****Please ask us how you can participate in the #socialshoeproject A Wearable Collections campaign to trace where your shoes go by connecting the donor to the second wearer via instagram. We are all connected in many ways – sometimes even by our feet.
