Plank Shoe Drive

Sponsored by the Plank Community Care Closet


Starts Monday, January 14th ends Thursday, March 14th.


The shoe drive will raise funds for the Plank Community Care Closet by partnering with Funds2orgs.  Our school will earn funds based on the total weight of the shoes collected.  Our goal is 3,000 pounds!  You can ask your friends, family, neighbors, and co-workers to donate too...


The Plank Community Care Closet assists Plank students and families who are experiencing hardships by having access right at our school to basic needs such as food, toiletries, school supplies, and cold weather gear. All proceeds from the shoe drive will go towards preparing and stocking the care closet! 


This drive not only benefits our school, but all donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of small businesses in developing countries. Funds2Orgs works with businesses to help them maintain and grow in areas where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from sales of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families.
