Bo Art Shoe Drive Fundraiser
June 29 @ 8:00 am - August 21 @ 5:00 pm
Bo Art is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser from June 21, 2020 through August 21, 2020 to raise funds to support our artists. Bo Art will earn funds based on the total weight of gently worn used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit the artists of Bo Art. Anyone can help by donating shoes at Bo Art Gallery or Koi Consignments, 19 Dunnagans Alley HHI.
All shoes will the. Be redistributed throughout the Funds2Org network of micro-entrepreneurs 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 bidding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send her son to law school.
” We are excited about our shoe drive”, said Hope Green, Chairperson. ” We know that most people have extra shoes in their closest they would like to donate to us. By doing so we raise money to support our in house artists and we have a chance to help families who need economic opportunities. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
Bo Art is a Makers Space and Gallery offering affordable rental studio space to artists.
