Youth Service, Inc. Launches Sneaker Drive Fundraiser to benefit at-risk youth.

(Philadelphia, PA – August 2017) – Youth Service, Inc. is conducting a sneaker drive fundraiser throughout the months of August and September to collect sneakers, raise funds and gift card donations to support at-risk youth in Youth Service, Inc. programs. We are asking for you to join us in our efforts by donating new sneakers/shoes or gift cards of any amount to any sneaker/shoe retailer, making a financial contribution, and/or by creating a drive at your office, church, community center or organization. 

Ways You Can Help: It’s easy and you can accomplish a lot by making an effort. Simply decorate a box for supporters to drop off sneakers in your office or lobby, decorate a shoe box and place it at your desk for gift cards of any amount (No donation is too small or too LARGE!), send a mass email, post on social media and tell a friend. Please feel free to forward this information and support us by hosting a drive. (Flyer attached) Please also consider making your store, office building, dorm or church a drop off location for others.
