Goshen Band Boosters Shoe Drive

The Goshen Band Boosters are doing a shoe drive, from February 10 till April 9th and would love your help. They’re collecting gently used or new shoes which are then taken to other countries such as Haiti and given to micro-entrepreneurs that would like a hand up instead of a hand out. The entrepreneurs refurbish the shoes into usable ones or other items of use and sell them to earn an income to help themselves and their families. We will have bins located outside the main gym doors at the next two home basketball games (February 10th & February 21st) and in GHS until April 9th. We also have a few locations around Goshen and we are currently still looking for more. Those locations are: Jules Boutique, The Moose, Maple City Bowl and GMS (band room). Thank you for helping!
