Children’s museum holding a shoe drive

Times-News

   GRAHAM — The Children’s Museum of Alamance County (CMAC) is holding a shoe collection drive now through July 31 to raise funds to aid in programming and operating expenses.
The children’s museum will earn funds based on the number of pairs collected as Funds2Orgs will purchase all the donated goods. Those dollars will benefit the Children’s Museum of Alamance County.
Donate gently worn, new or used shoes to the Children’s Museum, 217 S. Main St., Graham. For other drop-off locations, call the museum at 336-228-7997.
“We are excited about our shoe drive,” said Tom McLean, CMAC board member. “We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us and help those less-fortunate become self-sufficient. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
All donated shoes will be redistributed through Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise partners in developing nations in such countries as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the sales are used to feed, clothe and house families.
