Our goal is to raise $1,500 for the sake of local students in need in the FCUSD. We are partnering with the District Liaison for Homeless Services to support her yearly shoe drive. It is an honor to work as a team to help provide shoes for some of the neediest students in the FCUSD. We are very excited to see that $1,002.50 has come in so far and we look forward to meeting and exceeding our goal of $1,500. We chose $1,500 because that amount in effect will cover 100 pairs of brand new shoes for local students.
Keep up the great work everyone!!! Let’s keep working together as a team to make this happen.
Thank you to New Horizons Christian Church for deciding to do a community BBQ last Sunday as a way to raise support for the Project 680 Shoe Drive. The church paid for all meat and supplies, and church members brought side dishes to share. 100% of donations were directed to the Shoe Drive, which is tremendous. New Horizons called the community and local neighbors together to grill at Stone Creek Park for the sake of local students in need, and we are touched by people’s generosity. Thank you so much for your profound gift to these students. In essence, $500 will put shoes on at least 25 local students.
We continue to welcome individuals, households, churches, organizations and businesses to get involved in this effort.
We wanted to remind everyone that checks for the Project 680 Shoe Drive can be written to “Folsom Cordova Community Partnership” and then dropped off to us. Once donations are accounted for and tallied on our end, we get them to the Folsom Cordova Community Partnership right away. FCCP is a local non-profit sponsoring organization for the Shoe Drive and they work with the Folsom Cordova School District Liaison for Homeless Services on a regular basis. They were a natural “fit” for us to help make the check-writing process smooth (donations are tax deductible).
The best way to get checks to us is to drop them off on the morning of the bike ride on November 7, 2009 or drop something in the mail to us. It is very helpful for our board to be able to account for all donations before getting them to FCCP. Please call 916-595-3735 for additional details.
New Horizons Christian Church in Rancho Cordova will be providing a BBQ for the community on Sunday, 10/25/09, between 11:30-1:30pm at Stone Creek Park in Rancho Cordova (3625 Spoto Drive, Rancho Cordova, CA 95670). They’ll be grilling burgers and hot dogs, and they’ll also have side dishes galore. The church is paying for all the food and so 100% of donated money for the BBQ will go toward the Project 680 Shoe Drive. They have reserved covered seating at the park too. They’ll be putting out a flyer soon and we’ll make more information available when that happens.
If you are in town that day, go grab some food to support a great cause. Thank you New Horizons. What a great idea and we love the way you are advocating for local students in need.
Thank you to Shannan at City Hall in Rancho Cordova for partnering with the Project 680 Shoe Drive by making original Project 680 Bottlecap Magnets available to co-workers. We have always appreciated the way City Hall employees have supported past projects, and how they have been quick to be generous when it comes to advocating for local students in need. Way to go!!!!
We are excited to see Hubbert Systems, a local health care consulting company, in action to support the Project 680 Shoe Drive. Their idea is very practical and it sounds like fun also. Two of their employees are planning a Halloween party and they will be supporting the Shoe Drive by collecting some Payless Shoe Source gift cards from some generous souls at the party. Way to go Hubbert Systems Consulting!!! Thank you for your support!!!
You can download the flyer, print, and pass it around as you please. There is only one month until the Community Bike Ride, so we are hoping to work together as a team to get the word out about this very important effort. Please do let co-workers, family members, classmates, friends, church members, and anyone in your organizations or networks know about this opportunity. We will collaborate as a team to provide 100 pairs of brand new shoes for local students in need. Together we can make a difference.
You are also invite to link to us on your blog, website, Facebook, Twitter, or any other social networking site you may be on. You can check out THIS post with images to link from and even a video to embed online if you wish.
This is big!!! We are very excited to partner with www.BottlecapMagnets.com to offer handmade and original Project 680 bottlecap magnets to the community. We are calling this the ”One Cap. One Shoe.” campaign because when someone donates $10 for one magnet, the cost of one shoe will be covered!!! 100% of your donation will go toward our goal of raising $1,500 to purchase brand new shoes for 100 needy students in the FCUSD. You can get a tax receipt upon request too.
“One Cap. One Shoe”: The average pair of shoes at Payless Shoe Source (the vendor for the shoe drive) costs $20.00, so donating $10.00 for one magnet means you will literally be covering the cost of one shoe. Way to go!!! Bottlecap Magnets are sealed with a clear and smooth surface similar to glass and each is handmade. They are perfect for the fridge, office or even a gift, and they’ll be available early next week for as long as supplies last. The great thing too is that a magnet on the fridge or at the office can be a sweet reminder of the good work you did by providing shoes for needy students.
Please watch the video below (or HERE) to get a better sense of what these fantastic magnets look like. Contact us at email@example.com or 916-595-3735 to purchase a magnet. We will also have magnets available at our Community Bike Ride.
By the way, we would love for others to embed the video or link to the video on your website, blog, Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, or wherever you live online. Project 680 belongs to all of us and we will find success for the Shoe Drive by networking together. Let us know if you have any questions. Call 916-595-3735 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

We are proud to welcome BARC on board as a partner for the Project 680 Community Bike Ride. “BARC” stands for “Bicycling Advocates for Rancho Cordova.” In addition to recruiting some of their members for the ride and possibly doing some other networking, we have asked BARC to give a few safety tips to all of us immediately before we hit the trails on November 7th.
Even though we are doing a short ride that mostly anyone can do (3-4 miles one way – and then back the same distance after relaxing at River Bend Park), it’s still important to ride safely. On that note, we do recommend the use of a bike helmet for our ride. Don’t worry, we won’t bring a heavy hand or enforce any sort of helmet rule. We’re just saying we like people and we are fans of planning for safety.
For more information on Bicycling Advocates for Rancho Cordova, contact Bruce Oulrey at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 207-4012
