Chicas Latinas de Sacramento is excited to announce our shoe-drive for a Sacramento area elementary school!
We are sponsoring and providing shoes to the children at Hagginwood Elementary School. The school includes grades K-6 and has approximately 500 students — of which 96% receive reduced lunch prices and are considered “socio-economically disadvantaged” or at/below poverty level.
When we asked staff what the students are most in need of when starting the new school year, we were simply told, “shoes.” Shoes that fit and shoes in working condition… free of holes and torn soles. Back-to-school shoes, a basic need to most, are a luxury item to these children.
For that reason, Chicas Latinas members are hosting a shoe-drive and are asking the community to join us for “Starting off on the Right Foot,” as we rally together in an effort to provide shoes for these students as they enter into the new school year. Shoes must be new and should fit 5-12 year old students, boys and girls.
The shoe collection dates will run from August 4 thru September 18 — ending with a free #Network4Cause event for the school the evening of Sept. 18, for community members, participants, and donors!
Please share this event and consider asking your colleagues, friends, and family to donate A pair of shoes… I have 100% confidence we can collect 500 pairs of shoes, with your help! (No need to RSVP)
