Gateway needs shoe donations
from Monterey Freecycle: (please pass along)

Gateway Center is looking for shoe donations. They will accept "all kinds of shoes" for this fundraiser. They will receive 40 cents per pound of shoes that they collect! The company that they are working with for this fundraiser will in turn take these shoes to a 3rd world country where they will re-purpose them. Nothing gets thrown away! They either fix the shoes or tear them apart and re-purpose the pieces. They even go so far as to melt down the soles to fix other shoes. Not only does Gateway receive much needed funds, but impoverished people in 3rd world countries receive job training, jobs and life skills which leads to them having opportunities to earn income to feed their families. It's a win-win for all, so they are hoping that they can reach their goal of obtaining 7,500 shoes by 5-31-2014!
Please drop off your shoes at one of the following locations:
Gateway Center @ 850 Congress Avenue in Pacific Grove
or
Gateway Senior Center @ 408 Salinas Street in Salinas.
