Ongoing through end of February 2021: Shoe Drive Fundraiser
 
Let's clean out our closets and collect our gently worn, used, and new shoes! The Townsend Harris Student Union and PTA are aiming to collect 100 bags (around 2,500 lbs.) of shoes which will earn the school around $1,000. Donations can be brought to the donation collection box near the entrance of Townsend Harris (on 149th street) until the end of February 2021. To keep things organized, please tie the shoelaces together or use a rubber band to prevent pairs from separating.
 
Please reach out to friends, family, teams, schools, churches, civic groups, local businesses, and others in the community to support our shoe drive!

As many of us are now shopping online regularly even for basic necessities, you can donate to the PTA simply by shopping on Amazon.com without any extra cost to you. Here's how to do so:
  • The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price from your eligible smile.amazon.com purchases.
  • Tens of millions of products are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation."
  • Recurring Subscribe-and-Save purchases and subscription renewals are not currently eligible to generate donations.
  • After you place a qualifying smile.amazon.com order, it may take several days for the amount you have generated to update.
