The Oneonta Family YMCA is conducting a shoe collection drive thru January 17th, 2017.  The Oneonta Family YMCA organization will earn funds based on the number of pairs collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase all of the donated goods.  Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes at Oneonta Family YMCA 20-26 Ford Avenue, Oneonta NY 13820

All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise partners in developing nations.  Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.
