The Peirce PTO is supporting the Sweet Paws Rescue sneaker drive with GotSneakers.
Sweet Paws Rescue is a shelterless, foster-based dog and cat rescue that has saved nearly 17,000 dogs and cats over the past 10 years. And we have 2 Sweet Paws Rescue pups in our own Peirce community – William and Ala!
GotSneakers recycles and reuses quality pre-owned sneakers and will compensate Sweet Paws Rescue for every pair of sneakers donated based on quality, style and brand. Sneakers from our sneaker drive will be recirculated to people in need or repurposed into new surfaces such as playgrounds and tracks reducing the amount of sneakers in landfills which take 30-40 years to decompose and reduce toxic chemicals from being released into our air and soil.
Clean out your closets and bring your sneaker donations to school from Nov 29-Dec 3. There will be donation boxes at the front and back doors. Sneakers only, no cleats, boots or other non-athletic footwear please.
This is a great opportunity to benefit both animal welfare and help the environment with a pair of sneakers (or hopefully more)!
