Lincoln County Democrat Club to collect shoes for Gateway2Give

Posted on Monday, April 28, 2014 at 10:10 am

The Lincoln County Democrat Club has joined “forces” with Gateway2Give to recycle new and used shoes and handbags. With the assistance of Gateway2Give, the collections will decrease the load on landfills. Through Gateway2Give, donations are repurposed for sale in developing countries, helping to grow micro businesses and local economies. Funds generated by the sale of these items will support clean water initiatives around the world.

Gateway2Give is a social enterprise leading the growth of local and global micro businesses by repurposing everyday items. The Lincoln County Democrat Club is partnering with Tri-County Glass at 100 Hilltop, Troy and Dale’s Westside Storage at 3748 E. Hwy 47, Winfield as “drop-off” locations. These local businesses will continue to accept donations through Tuesday, May 6. Any questions may be directed to Dottie D. Crenshaw, 205 Peach Street, and Elsberry or by phone at 573-898-5085. The public is invited to support this “Win/Win” project!
