2. Shoe Drive: Neighbor's Instructions

Your help is needed to assist Family Outreach to serve the desperately poor Haitian/Dominican Batey Communities. You can help us by collecting used shoes from your neighbors at home, associates at school, at church, or on the job. Every family member can help to hand out at least 5-10 of these fliers. This is a great family project. This small act speaks clearly that you and your sponsoring group are involved.


?       Take this flier home and give 5+ copies to each family member to distribute w/ a 30 gallon plastic bag among 5+ neighbors or associates. 

?       Tell your associate, “Our Collection Day is____________________.


?       Please leave the bagged used shoes at/on/in_________________.”

?       Record their name and e-mail so we keep them informed.

?       On the Collection Day retrieve the shoes in the plastic bag from your associates and leave a “Thank You Tax Receipt.”

?       Gather your all family’s shoes and drop off the shoe bags in the truck at the designated central collection point with your list of donor names & e-mail.                                    


These shoes will be recycled for use in Haiti. In this developing country’s tropical climate, the ladies will not use spike heals, woolly felt slippers or boots. All other athletic, casual, sandals, dress shoes for men, women or children are greatly appreciated. Shoes that have holes or are visibly tore up, should be discarded.
