Sneaker Fundraiser

YOUTH INSPIRATIONS THEATRE is holding an athletic shoe drive fundraiser from September 1 through October 15 to raise money for our production of Wizard of Oz. YIT will earn funds based on the total quantity of gently worn, used, and new sneakers collected. GotSneakers, a social enterprise, will issue funds in compensation for the collected sneakers. Those funds will benefit Wizard of Oz. Anyone can help by simply donating gently worn, used, and new sneakers.

GotSneakers has developed a unique fundraising program that asks communities to reach into their closets, not their pockets! The sneaker recycling program helps keeps sneakers out of landfills, which has harmful effects on our environment and helps organizations like ours raise much-needed funds. The program is truly a win – win! Learn more about GotSneakers by visiting their website at

“We know that most people have extra sneakers in their closets they would like to donate rather than throw away. By doing so, we raise money for our production of Wizard of Oz and help the environment. It’s a win – win for everyone!”
