Veterans Day Fundraiser
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help us raise money and make a difference!
Veterans 5-9 Sneaker Drive
Veterans Day is coming up and what better way to celebrate than by giving back to those who have given us so much? That’s why Imaginary Friends Design Studios is hosting a Sneaker Drive to Raise Funds for Veterans 5-9, an Arizona-based non-profit organization that helps veterans who are homeless, exiting the military, needing options for substance abuse, mental health, food, transportation or incarcerated.
Imaginary Friends is accepting any used sneakers, no matter the brand or size, at our studio location in Yuma through Veterans Day, November 11th. If you’re unable to donate sneakers but would still like to contribute, we welcome monetary donations as well!
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
About Veterans 5-9:
Veterans 5-9 is a nonprofit organization designed to provide nighttime and weekend resources to veterans who are homeless, exiting the military, incarcerated, veterans needing resource options for substance abuse, mental health, food, and transportation. Founded by the United States Marine Marcus Foerster, who knew how valuable this program could be to his community. As a former senior board member of a veteran organization, he took those tools and established this unique, outside-of-the-box organization to cut the red tape and help those getting lost in the system.

Did you know that your gently worn sneakers could help Veterans in crisis?
Well, they can, and here’s how…Our team is participating in a fundraiser where there is nothing to buy or sell; All we need is your support and your gently worn or used sneakers!
Here’s how YOU can help:
Start in your and your family’s closets and gather as many pairs of sneakers that you no longer want; maybe you’ve outgrown them, they’re out of style, or out of season. If you and your household have 2-5 pairs, great! If not, don’t worry. You can ask your neighbors, friends, co-workers, and anyone in your social networks to help out. Every pair counts!
The sneakers that we all collect will help raise money to support our program AND will help our environment by keeping sneakers out of landfills.
Can we count on you?
