Gentry Band Using Shoe Donations to Help Developing Countries


Gentry band members are changing the lives of families all across the world and they’re doing it one pair of shoes at a time 

100 bags…filled with 25 pairs of shoes each. That’s how many shoes the band hopes to donate to developing countries. 

Every bag of shoes will help a family start their own business by selling the shoes and using the profits to start their own small business. 

They will also provide much needed footwear to families. 

One Gentry Band mom says the shoes will help change lives. 

Crystal Wood is a Gentry Band mother. She is organizing the fundraiser. She said, There’s a lot of children around the world that their families only get $2 a day. A lot of children they don’t even have shoes. So it helps them to be able to  grow within their own families and help them. “

The organization  “funds2orgs” puts the shoe donation drives together. 

For every bag donated $10 dollars will also go back to the Gentry Band to help pay for band members meals during competitions.
