The Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, and TJM Promos are collecting children’s shoes to benefit the Pearl Project.
Through Jan. 19, the Appleton and TJM Promos will help stock the Pearl Project’s Kid-2-Kid closet by collecting new and like-new shoes for children of all ages. Donate two or more pairs of shoes and receive a one-year individual membership to the Appleton and an insulated Appleton thermos featuring a work of art from the Appleton’s collection. Limit one membership and thermos per person; memberships will be processed after Jan. 2.
Only have one pair of shoes to donate? The Pearl Project and the families they support are appreciative of all donations.
The Pearl Project is a nonprofit organization that provides services for foster and adoptive families. Like pearls, many children’s stories begin in hard places. The Pearl Project offers hope and practical help to these families through educational opportunities and support groups. To learn more about the Pearl Project, visit www.thepearlprojectflorida.org.
If you have questions about making a donation, contact AppletonMuseum@cf.edu.
Shoes may be dropped off at either location.
