Save the Date…and your Sneakers!

The CHA Upper School will be holding Sneaker Drive this January to help CHA families clean out their closets while raising funds toward the Spring Formal.

GotSneakers, a social enterprise, has developed a unique fundraising program that asks communities to reach into their closets, not their pockets!

The sneaker recycling program helps keeps sneakers out of landfills, which has harmful effects on our environment, and helps organizations like CHA raise activity funds. GotSneakers will compensate CHA between $0.25—$7.00 a pair for the collected sneakers, depending on the level of wear. Anyone—family, friends, neighbors—can help by simply donating gently worn, used, and new sneakers, because everyone has used sneakers sitting around that they no longer wear!

So start collecting those used sneakers from your closets, mudrooms, and garages and get them ready to bring to school in January!
