Those dollars will benefit the toddlers attending the program by providing a safe playground with an awning to shield them from the summer sun and misty rain. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes at 5 Star Academy Learning Center located at 725 Raleigh Street, West Columbia, SC. All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise 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. “We are excited about our shoe drive," said Mary Ellen Scott, Grandmother supporting her Grandson, D. Singleton (a toddler attending the learning center). "We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like donate to us and help those less fortunate become self-sufficient. It’s a win-win for everyone,” added Kisa Moore, Daycare Owner/Director. By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to 5 Star Academy Learning Center in anticipation of our 3rd Annual May Day Festival on May 20th, 2017;, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives.
