Event description

Description

In January 2017, SRU students volunteered at a grils' home in Kenya where they met Baby Hope, a four month old child born to a mother who was not able to care for her. Hope now lives at Hekima Place and will celebrate her FIRST birthday in September. Members of the Student Nonprofit Alliance have agreed sponsor Hope at a cost of $750 per year. If we collect 2500 pairs of shoes we will raise enough to sponsor Hope for a year.

Register your group here to receive bags and rubber bands for packaging the shoes your group collects and then bring the bags to SRU Quad Gazebo between 11:00 am -- 3:00 pm on Thursday, September 28th. We'll have birthday cake and sing happy birthday to Hope at 12:30 in the Gazebo. The video tape of the Birthday Bash for Hope will be taken to Hekima Place by the SRU students who will volunteer there in Januar 2018.

All groups that pre-register will receive a certificate of appreciation. The THREE groups bringng the most shoes will win awards.

Your group isn't able to collect shoes or can't make the event but would like to provide a donation to help sponsor Baby Hope? Donations for sponsoring Hope accepted at www.givetosru.org/sna or by check payable to SRU Foundation/Student Nonprofit Alliance Student Nonprofit Alliance at Slippery Rock University and sent to 200-C Spotts World Culture Bldg, Slippery Rock PA 16057
