From The Ground UP

Help the 15th District Parent Teacher Association (PTA) raise money to provide new shoes for needy students in Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS). For more than 40 years, volunteers and donors with the 15th District PTA have provided new and gently used clothing and accessories for JCPS students. The 15th District PTA has launched a new fund, From the Ground Up! This fund will solicit community donations to purchase new sneakers and athletic shoes for students, which are a basic needs gap for many students and their families.

Each donation of $50 will provide four pairs of shoes to students in kindergarten through high school. The shoes will be distributed by the 15th District PTA’s Clothing Assistance Program (CAP), which already provides new uniforms (pants and a shirt), five pairs of socks and underwear, and a belt to JCPS students in need, currently about 10,000 students each year.

This fund would be a great way for a business, organization, place of worship, or an individual to make a big difference in the life of a child. 100 percent of all donations through check will be used to purchase shoes. (Donations through PayPal include a slight processing fee.)
