Event Flyer

RMS PTA Shoe Drive Fundraiser

Clean out your closets for a cause!

We will be kicking off our Shoe Drive Fundraiser TONIGHT at Book Bingo! Bring in your old, gently used shoes for a chance to win a gift card!

All types of shoes welcome as long as they are in good condition.

If we collect 2,500 pairs of shoes, $1,000.00 will be donated to the RMS PTA!
That’s approximately 8 pairs of shoes per student.

Collected shoes are used to support micro-enterprise vendors. Micro-enterprises are small businesses in developing nations. They are typically operated by one person or family and friends, depending on size.

Book Bingo!

We are proud to present out 14th Book Bingo! We invite all of the RMS Families to come out and play bingo for a chance to win a book. It is our hope that each child will go home with a book.

Snacks will be available for purchase.

We hope you will join us!
