This is our tenth year of collecting new sneakers for students in the Charlotte County Public School System. The focus of this project is to collect new tennis shoes, for children in need and then distribute them to all of the schools in the Charlotte County Public School System at the start of the 2015-2016 school year. This year the goal will be 5000 new pairs of sneakers.

Collection bins will be placed throughout Charlotte County for a 5 week period, from June 21 – July 26 2015. You can participate in this event by purchasing a new pair of tennis shoes and dropping them off in our collection bins located at the following locations…Kays-Ponger & Uselton Funeral Homes and Cremation Services; 635 E Marion Ave Punta Gorda, 2405 Harbor Blvd Port Charlotte, 1935 Tamiami Tr.
