During the spring and summer months, Chicas Latinas de Sacramento holds an annual community donation-drive “Starting Off on the Right Foot,” which collects NEW shoes for the children at our sponsored school.
TYPICALLY, we host community fundraisers and drive events to reach our NEW shoe goal, but 2020 has proven to be anything but typical. Which is why we, and Woodridge Elementary School, need our community more than ever! Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, our scheduled shoe drive fundraising events have been either canceled or postponed. We are in uncharted territory.
Unfortunately, instead of hosting fun in-person fundraisers, this year Chicas Latinas de Sacramento will rely on online giving to meet our goal of providing every child at Woodridge elementary school with a new pair of shoes.
We need to raise enough funds (online!) to collect over 800 pairs of NEW shoes. This is our largest shoe drive goal yet, and there is no way we’ll be able to provide for these children without your help.
Help a child “Start Off on the Right Foot”! You’re invited to participate in our 6th annual “Starting Off on the Right Foot” shoe drive and help us in our goal of providing every child at Woodridge Elementary School in Foothill Farms with a new pair of shoes, for the new school year!
Sacramento — we have our work cut out for us this year. To provide EVERY CHILD at Woodridge with a new pair of shoes for the 20/21 school year, we’ll need to collect over 800 NEW PAIRS OF SHOES! This is our largest undertaking yet, and we won’t be able to accomplish our goal without community donors, sponsors, and partners!
It is our goal to see to it that EVERY child, at Woodridge Elementary School, is able to start the new year on the right foot!
WHY SHOES? When we asked school staff what 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 the children who attend our sponsored schools.
