Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful (KGMB) launches Shoe Drive Fundraiser
(Milwaukee, WI, January 6, 2022) – Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful (www.kgmb.org) is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser during January and February 2022 to raise funds for youth and adult environmental education programs and community beautification initiatives. KGMB will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes (no single shoes – pairs only). Shoes are being collected at the KGMB office: 1313 W. Mt. Vernon Ave., Milwaukee, WI 53233.
“We are excited about our shoe drive,” said Zoe Jump, Executive Director. “Most people have extra shoes in their closets and by donating to us we raise money for KGMB and have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities.”
By donating pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes to KGMB, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.
