BUILDING BLOCKS MINISTRIES is conducting a shoe drive fundraiser on Monday, March 1 THRU Friday, April 30th, 2021 to raise funds for their Day Training Program. Building Blocks Ministries will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Those dollars will benefit adults with developmental disabilities. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used and new shoes at Building Blocks Ministries, 548 S Highway 27, Suite C, Minneola, in the Trailside Plaza.

All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs 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 shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send to her son to law school.

“We are excited about our shoe drive,” said Paula Whetro, Executive Director. “We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they would like to donate to us. By doing so, we raise money to support our Day Training Program that serves adults with developmental disabilities, and we have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

By donating gently worn, used and new shoes to Building Blocks Ministries Day Training Program, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives around the world.

Located in Minneola, Building Blocks Ministries has been serving the community since 2006 providing a Day Training Program, Case Management and Transportation services, working daily to fulfill its mission; “Empowering adults with developmental disabilities to dream, believe in themselves and engage in training designed to support individual achievements.” Building Blocks Ministries is a FL Medicaid Waiver Provider and accepts private payment.
