Summer is drawing to a close and as the heat (finally!) starts to chill down, it's getting closer and closer to trade your summer clothes for fall ones and chucking those you hate out to the donation pile. But hold it!
Does your donation pile have shoes? If so, we need them! You see, Amory Humane Society has a new fundraiser project that helps not just us, but the thousands of people around the world who don't have shoes. These people walk everywhere--not matter what the terrain--to get the supplies and food their families need to survive. And with Wooftrax, we've taken on a challenge we need your help to achieve.
Between now (September 1) and October 31, we've got a goal to reach. If we can collect 2500 pairs of shoes, Wooftrax will give AHS $1000 for our effort. How cool is that? We win to help our folks by helping other folks!
What can YOU do?
If you have shoes you're willing to donate to us, bring them by the shelter at any time! Leave them with a employee, or drop them on the front porch and we'll get them as soon as we get to the office and add them to our pile!
What condition should they be in?
Shoes that are qualifying for donation to this project should be:
-gently worn and still able to be worn
-still have treads on the soles
-have laces (if applicable)
Any shoes that meet these few requirements will count towards our goal!
Shoes that cannot count towards our goal:
-shoes with holes
-shoes with soles that are separating from the bottom of the shoe
-shoes that have been chewed up by animals or otherwise tattered
-shoes that have been in storage and are mildewed or rotted
We have two months to reach our goal, and we're relying on our faithful supporters to help us get there! If you have any questions about the Wooftrax shoe fund, please call us at 662.256.7566 during normal operating hours and we'll be glad to help.
Now, let's get going!
