Here's a fundraiser that doesn't require you to purchase an item, helps you clean out your closet, and benefits TVBBC and micro-industries in developing communities. What is it you ask?
A Shoe Collection Drive!
The drive works similar to a used clothing drive, in that gently worn, used, and new items are collected and the fundraising company pays the collecting organization for collecting the items. The shoes will be re-purposed and sent to countries like Ghana, Ukraine and Haiti. The people in these countries will be trained to become micro-entrepreneurs, thus giving them a source of income to feed their families.
Proceeds to be used for TVBBC Music Department and TVBBC operating expenses.
In case you were wondering...
Our long term funding goals include, but are not limited to TVHS Music Program equipment/instrument purchases, equipment transportation (trailer rental or possible purchase depending on district guidance) for away marching band events, scholarships, and uniform replacement. Our spending goals will be developed in collaboration with Mr. Johnson, TVHS Music Program Director, based on the music program needs and gap assessment with site and district administration.
