Pittsburgh Rotary along with many terrific District 7300 Rotary and Interact clubs have made the 2014-2015 Shoes for Nicaragua Project a huge success!
The third Shoes for Nicaragua campaign is now complete. . Rotary and Interact clubs, companies, schools, doctors’ offices, etc. have completed their drives and their gently used children’s have been delivered to our shipper in Cincinnati.
Many other organizations conducted campaigns this campaign period ending in July 2015. This year we collected over 5,000 pairs of gently used children’s shoes which brings our three year total to over 20,000.
The Shoes for Nicaragua committee wants to thank everyone who has helped in this year’s project. It’s proven to be a simple, efficient and effective international project that has immediate benefits to the recipients, who are children in Nicaragua who need shoes to attend school but their families cannot afford shoes for every child. We are making a difference. Pittsburgh Rotary looks forward to our fourth campaign led by Rotarian Alexis England.
