ANNIE’S LOCKER 2016 SHARE A PAIR
is off and running!
With your help, Annie's Locker has been able to donate over 2,000 pairs of athletic shoes to elementary schools in the Rockford area. Here's a recap of what your generous donations have achieved so far: In 2013: Donated 500 pairs of shoes to RPS 205 elementary schools; In 2014: Donated 1,500 pairs of shoes to RPS 205 King, Beyer, Lewis Lemon, Nelson, and Ellis elementary schools; In 2015: Donated 300 pairs of shoes to RPS 205 Kishwaukee Elementary School - we introduced the Fit in 60 "play initiative" that encouraged students to get 60 minutes of activity every day to earn their new shoes and socks.
This year, we hope that we can count on you again to help provide proper gym shoes (and socks too!) to the 300 students of McIntosh Elementary School. So far, McIntosh Elementary students have participated in our Pennies for Tennies program! In just one month, the students collected $593.82. This year we partnered with Runners Image, a local running store, to help us provide gym shoes at cost for the students at McIntosh School. Annie's Locker is excited that we can work with a local business on our quest to help our local children grow stronger and healthier!! Thank you for your consideration, financial donations to help us reach our goal can be made at http://annieslocker.org/make-a-financial-donation/
