SF To Participate In Soles4Souls

The Southern Fulton School District (SFSD) Student Forum, an interschool leadership group, has announced its participation in a unique fundraising program offered by the international shoe charity, Soles4Souls, to raise funds for trips and project supplies.

The Soles4Souls Fundraiser is an innovative and philanthropic alternative to traditional fundraisers that allows organizations such as schools, churches and civic groups to raise important revenue while sponsoring new shoes for children in need in the more than 125 different countries in which Soles4Souls does distributions.

During this virtual shoe drive, students will be collecting financial sponsorships of new shoes that they will return to Soles4Souls. Soles4Souls will then use the sponsorships collected by the students to send new shoes to children in need, as well as return a portion of the total collected back to the school district to use for Student Forum expenses.

“Our fundraising program is a partnership in its truest form,” said Wayne Elsey, founder and CEO of Soles4Souls. “When students like those of the SFSD Student Forum step up and participate, we are able to put shoes on the feet of children who need them, while also being able to support the important work our schools do every day. This program gives students the opportunity to develop their sense of social responsibility, while working together to make a difference – both worldwide and at home.”

The SFSD Student Forum will run the fundraising program from January 1 to March 1, and is looking forward to the support of its local community. For more information or to make a donation, visit www.Soles4SoulsFundraisin g.org/SFSD_StudentForum.
