The Gate of Heaven, Inc. is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser beginning May 1, 2019. The Gate of Heaven, Inc. will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Fund2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes. We are accepting shoes from infants to adult. We are also accepting flip flops, sandals, slippers and cleats. All donated shoes will be redistributed throughout Fund2Orgs network of micro-entreprise partners. Funds2Org works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in the shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families.

The Gate of Heaven, Inc. is in need of a new water heater for The Inn @the Gate Bed and Breakfast. By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to The Gate of Heaven, Inc., the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people's lives. Those who come to stay at The Inn @the Gate B &B will appreciate hot showers. It's a win-win.

If you or your organization would like to help, please contact us at 540-241-8796 or cathe_myers@thegateofheaven.org.
