The Fruitdale Grange began this community service project in 2015, and we’re very proud of it…Shoes For Kids. In the past years, we’ve helped hundreds of children with new shoes and recently socks as well.
What we are finding however is the need is not just at back to school time. Children in our community could need shoes at any time. Foster children, the homeless, and families who have found themselves down on their luck. So many unfortunate reasons.
We would like to be able to help them when the need arises throughout the year. To accomplish this, we developed what we hope will be a successful annual sponsorship opportunity that businesses and individuals can afford to commit to. It’s called the “105 Club”.
When the program first started, we spent up to $35 per child. Today, each child is given a budget of $50. Our goal is $25,000 each year to help 500 children.
Along with the annual fundraisers that we currently do such as Bunco and Sock Hop Dance, we feel that we will be prepared to help children as needed throughout the year with the help of our wonderful donors. Certificates are distributed through the 7 local food banks as well as other Josephine County Agencies and Organizations focused on children’s needs.
We are asking for your help.
