May 4th thru July 15th
Fire Departments across the state have had their funding impacted by COVID-19 restrictions cancelling so many critical fundraisers. We want to do something to help the departments in the 15 counties of the 12th Congressional District. We are organizing a shoe drive fundraiser as a district-wide challenge.
Liz Terwilliger for Congress is providing supplies to departments, promoting the drive, collecting bags of shoes at the end of the drive, coordinating the shipping of collected shoes and distributing proceeds to each participating fire department.
Participating Fire Departments will collect shoes at their fire house, promote the shoe drive, store bags of shoes collected in a dry place out of the weather.
Departments will receive 100% of the funds raised for the shoes they collect. The more a Department collects, the more money they’ll raise.
As an added incentive, the Fire Department that collects the most shoes will get their name on the Firehouse Footgear Challenge Plaque (donated by Woodland Art) and will possess the plaque until next year’s drive.
Shoes have to be clean and gently used or new.
Liz Terwilliger is partnering with Funds2Orgs. They are paying for the shoes collected, by the pound. They are supplying collection bags that hold approximately 25 pairs of shoes. Each bag is worth approximately $10 in proceeds. Shipping will be FREE if we collect 100 bags of shoes combined from all participating departments.
