Serving the needs of others...
Crown Ministry Group is a non-profit organization committed to serving the needs of others. A desire to help other non-profits led them to develop GreenSneakers. This program works with other non-profit organizations as they work to offset the costs associated with various organizational development needs.
GreenSneakers also makes it possible for CMG to provide professional, low (or no) cost organizational development consulting services to other non-profits. CMG also assists non-profits with needs in the areas of business development. These can be in information technology and systems, marketing and communications, or both.
By collecting used tennis shoes for GreenSneakers, non-profits can raise funds to put toward fulfilling their mission and vision. The program provides organizations with a uniquely effective and environmentally friendly fundraising opportunity that has local and global impacts.
With a collection of sneakers for reuse, non-profits help provide affordable footwear to people in need around the world. This activity greatly improves economic conditions in developing nations, as well, and provides sustainable job opportunities where they otherwise would not exist.
In cases of great humanitarian need, collected sneakers are distributed through reputable relief agencies that have the appropriate mechanisms in place to effectively engage in this level of aide.
GreenSneakers is a simple, effective and conscientious way to meet local and global needs, while ensuring a stewardship of our planet through reuse and recycling.
