Several local businesses are coming together to help our local library, W.T. Bland Public Library, to raise funds to renovate their children's library. Papilio is honored to be apart of this community event.
The Friends of the Library, a 501c non-profit volunteer organization, is collecting adult or children's gently used or new shoes or sneakers. Shoes should be in good condition, soles intact, with laces (if applicable), dry and clean.
Collected shoes go to support people in poverty in developing nations who will use them to create their own small business. They are typically operated by one person or family.
Every pair of shoes donated will raise money to help Mount Dora's public library purchase new children's books and renovate the children's area!
Papilio is a drop-off location. In addition, for every pair of acceptable shoes/sneakers Papilio will give you a $5.00 Papilio Gift Certificate per pair of shoes, up to 4 pair, as a Thank You for your support.
Donations accepted through the end of September 2018.
