The Burke Center Launches Sneaker Drive Fundraiser to Raise Money to support mental health programs and services.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The Burke Center Launches Sneaker Drive Fundraiser to Raise Money to support mental health programs and services.

Tunkhannock, PA, 2022 – The Burke Center (www.burkecenter.org) is holding an ongoing athletic shoe drive fundraise to raise money for mental health programs and services.  The Burke Center 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. Those funds will benefit The Burke Center’s mental health programs and services. 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 keeps sneakers out of landfills, which has harmful effects on our environment, and helps organizations like ours 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, it’s such a unique opportunity for our organization to raise money,” said Jessica Burke, Executive Director.

“We know that most people have extra sneakers in their closets they would like to donate rather than throw away. By doing so, we raise money for The Burke Center and help the environment. It’s a win – win for everyone!”

If you have sneakers you would like to donate, they can be dropped off at The Burke Center during regular business hours:
