Chicas Latinas de Sacramento is excited to announce Glenwood Elementary has been chosen as our 2019 shoe drive beneficiary! Glenwood Elementary School serves approximately 500 K-6th grade students. Over 60% of the students identify as hispanic/Latino and 93% of the entire student-body are considered socioeconomically disadvantaged.
During our 2019 fundraiser and donation-drive, 100% of all shoe and monetary donations collected will be used to provide a NEW pair of shoes for the children at Glenwood Elementary, part of Robla Elementary School District.
Chicas Latinas’ Annual “Starting Off on the Right Foot” Shoe Drive provides NEW shoes to local elementary students in need. Shoes that fit properly, are free of holes, and have intact soles, are unfortunately considered a luxury item for some Sacramento families and children. It is our goal to see to it that EVERY child (500) at our sponsored school is able to start the new year on the right foot!
In order to provide every child at our sponsored school with a NEW pair of athletic shoes this year, we’ll need to collect enough donations from the Sacramento community to provide over 500 pairs of shoes. Donate directly via the link below or join us at one of our exciting fundraising events (such as our two recent sell-out paint nights, pics below)!
