Haddam Lions to Hold Coat & Shoe Drive

Submitted by Mike LaFleur, Haddam Lions

(December 16, 2020)  The Haddam Lions Club will be hosting a coat and shoe drive at HES from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on December 26 & 27, January 2 & 3, and January 9 & 10.

All new or gently used coat and shoe donations are welcome.

The coats will be distributed to those in need in our communities.

The shoes will be collected by Funds2Orgs, a for-profit organization which helps groups such as the Lions Clubs to raise money.   They in turn, will write a check to the Lions based on the amount/weight of shoes collected.

To date, Funds2Orgs has shipped over 20 million pairs of shoes to people and places hurt by natural disasters.

They also provide an economic opportunity for micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations.  A two-fold benefit of the enterprise is that it creates small businesses and helps keep shoes from ending up in landfills.
