Solicit businesses who would allow a container to be placed at their location
to collect the shoes. Suggestions: New Cumberland VFW or any other locations,
churches, schools, care facilities such as Bethany Village, Country Meadows etc,
Colleges are a potential source for shoes. The student can make use of
social media, bulletin boards, and classrooms. A student may need to do a service
project and this one is perfect for them.
Family and Friends: a great source of many shoes. If you travel for a visit,
call ahead, and ask for them to collect the shoes and then you can pick up while
there for the visit. This works best when you drive versus air travel.
Neighborhood collections. Ask your neighbors, use social media Next Door
or Facebook to spread the word about the fundraiser.
Yard Sales: check out the area yard sales and stop by on Saturday
afternoons as by that time they are very willing to give you the shoes. Follow the
Carlisle Car Shows as those are usually very good weekends for yard sales.
Bottom line: Spread the word as far as you can, and you will obtain many
Social Media: make use of Next Door, Facebook, Email and more!
