A Team Effort

CW Enactus would like to thank everyone for donating shoes to our recent shoe drive.  While we raised an impressive amount of shoes – 375 pairs – we fell short of our goal.  The good news is we were able to help TevaLand Sanctuary Farm reach their goal of 2500 shoes, which made TevaLand eligible to receive a profit check from Funds2Orgs. 

Funds2Orgs will now ship the shoes to micro-entrepreneurs in developing nations. Because of poverty, sustainable jobs are hard to come by in developing countries. So, the micro-entrepreneurs sell the shoes in their communities to make a good living.

Although the hope was that CW Enactus would be able to receive a profit check from Funds2Orgs, we are still proud to have helped such a notable cause as TevaLand Sanctuary Farm.  Located in the Ramapo Mountains, Rockland County, New York, TevaLand Sanctuary Farm began as a small sustainable homestead on a woodland property. Volunteers on a privately funded “shoestring” budget, primarily using recycled and salvaged materials, constructed every fence and many structures on the farm. The farm has now become a complete non-profit organization. They rescue animals of all sizes from small hamsters, to large, majestic horses and everything in between. They each have a story to call their own but now share the same ending of having a safe home forever at TevaLand.

We would like to thank the CW Community of students, faculty, and staff for their support with our Shoe Drive Fundraiser.  A special thank you to Dr. Jodi Jacobs, Chiropractor and Adjunct Professor at CW for collecting shoe donations at her clinic, Jacobs Health Care Group in Yonkers, NY.
