Your Soles ~ Their Souls Shoe Drive Fundraiser

March 12 @ 8:00 am May 10 @ 3:00 pm

We invite you to join us for this win-win-win fundraising event!

– You get to clean out your closets

– The Tide ministry raises funds for Gospel Outreach through Literacy Classes in India

– The shoes collected allow microbusiness owners in developing countries to support their families

Our goal is to fill 100 bags of 25 pairs each.

Here is how you can get involved:

Donate your new or gently worn used shoes

Promote the event in your local church, business, group, or community

Be an advocate by placing a collection box at your local church, business, or group meeting (you will be in charge of the collection at these sites)

Help at a community collection location (Date TBD)

Help load the truck at the end of the collection period

Shoe Ambassadors are a very important part of the shoe drive! They

– tell others about the collection.

– are the liaisons between The Tide office and their church or business.

– collect the shoes from their location box to make space for more.

– drop off shoes to The Tide office throughout the drive.*

– are in communication with The Tide office once per week.

For more details or to become a Shoe Ambassador, please contact Erlinda at 717-264-7288 or erlinda@thetide.org.

*If out of the area, other arrangements can be made with The Tide office.
