Description

Chicas Latinas de Sacramento is excited to announce our shoe-drive for a Sacramento area elementary school!

Make your monetary donation HERE (via Eventbrite) to provide a pair of shoes to a child at D.W. Babcock Elementary School!!!

When we ask school staff members what the students are most in need of when starting the new school year, we are often 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 hosting a shoe-drive and are asking the community to support "Starting off on the Right Foot," and rally together 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.

Deadline for monetary and NEW SHOE donations is September 1, 2018. Monetary donations will go 100% towards the purchase of new shoes for students at D.W. Babcock Elementary School.

Please share this event and consider asking your colleagues, friends, and family to donate $20 to provide a pair of shoes, or more. We have 100% confidence we can collect and provide over 600 pairs of shoes, with your help!

Drop-Off Locations and Drive Events TBA!
