A New FUNdraiser is Afoot, CCSCT Launches Sneaker Drive

Community Council of South Central Texas invites the community to dig deep into their hearts (and closets) and donate gently used tennis shoes to their organization.


South Central, TX – CCSCT is holding an athletic shoe drive fundraiser to raise money for local families in need. The group will earn funds based on the total quantity of gently worn, used, and new sneakers collected. GotSneakers, a social enterprise, will issue funds in compensation for the collected sneakers. Anyone can help by simply donating gently worn, used, and new sneakers.

GotSneakers has developed a unique fundraising program that asks communities to reach into their closets, not their pockets! The sneaker recycling program helps keep sneakers out of landfills, which has harmful effects on our environment, and helps organizations raise much needed funds. The program is truly a win – win! Learn more about GotSneakers by visiting their website at www.gotsneakers.com.

“We are excited about our sneaker drive fundraiser,” said Bobby Deike, Executive Director for CCSCT, “… most people have extra sneakers in their closets they would like to donate rather than throw away. By doing so, we raise money for local families in need and help the environment.”

CCSCT cordially invites individuals, families, schools, civic organizations, and businesses to join in this wonderful volunteer opportunity! You may drop off your sneakers at any CCSCT office, or at participating businesses with a drop off box. If you would like to partner with us, please contact Kenneth Loy at 830-876-9812.
