Winter Boot Drive

We are partnering with the Portland School System to provide warm, waterproof winter boots to Portland Middle Schoolers. This effort is for students who are homeless and New Mainers. There is a huge need - the school system is looking for 175 pairs of boots!
We are reaching out to the Portland community for “gently used boots” for these students in need. We are looking for 150 pairs of boots for K through 5th grade (ages 5-11) and 25 pairs of boots for 6th through 8th grades (ages 12-14).
If you would like to donate money to the cause, click the donate button HERE. Portland Rotary will use these funds to purchase boots. If you would like to buy a pair of boots for the cause, go to Goodwill and purchase a pair and bring them to an upcoming Rotary meeting. Wish to drop off? Our friends at Lamey Wellehan Shoes will be accepting boot donations at their stores in Falmouth and Scarborough. Boots can be donated now through November 27th.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and helping to keep children’s feet warm and dry during the winter months.
