Chicas Latinas de Sacramento tiene el gusto de organizar por segundo año consecutivo la campaña de recolección de zapatos ” Starting on the right foot” que ayuda a escuelas locales. Este año estamos patrocinando a la escuela Woodbine en el sur de Sacramento.
Nuestra meta es de recaudar 700 pares de zapatos nuevos para niños de entre 5-12 años de edad.
Estamos invitando a la communidad a que nos ayude a llegar a esta meta y ayude a los niños a empezar el año escolar bien.
Tenemo tres localidades donde pueden dejar su donacion: Kershaw, Cutter & Ratinoff (401 Watt Ave.), Capsity (2572 21st St.), (448 Howe Ave). O tambien pueden acudir a nuestra Fiesta Communitaria este 28 de agosto que toma lugar en Sol Collective, o nuestro marathon de zumba el 30 de agosto en Result Transformation.
Bring your final shoe donations to Sol Collective on Friday, August 28th from 5:30 -7:30 and enjoy refreshments and small bites as we celebrate the closing of our annual shoe drive. (Open to the public. Please RSVP.)
This year we’re sponsoring Woodbine Elementary School — with a goal of 700 pairs of NEW shoes. Can you help?!?!
In case you missed last year’s shoe-drive… here’s what you missed:
When we asked school staff members 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 host anual shoe-drives for local schools and are ask the community to join us for “Starting off on the Right Foot,” 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.
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 700 pairs of shoes, with your help!
You read right Sacramento, you’re invited to a Zumba “Shake Yo Booty” Shoe Drive!
