Update:  The Rotary Club was able to realize $1,500 from this project.  Thanks to all who participated.
The Grand Island Rotary Club would like to thank Grand Island Residents for their support in the club's recent shoe fundraiser. The club surpassed their goal of 2500 pairs of shoes, collecting over 3000 gently used shoes that will be turned into cash. The shoes will be purchased by a company that will then distribute them to family run micro-enterprises in impoverished areas throughout the world. The money the club makes will be used to fund their local causes including Grand Island High School scholarships, the Family Justice Center, the Adopt-a-Highway program and the DeGlopper Memorial Expansion Program.  If you would like information about joining the Grand Island Rotary call (716) 603-6301.
The club met Wednesday and cheered the success.  Present are Jerry Barlow, Hank Kammerer, Faye Teluk, John Harbison, Michelle Lockett, Debbie Whalen, front row: Diane Garey, Sherry Miller, Samantha Bartolatta
