The heat is on and summertime is approaching. Soon kids and teenagers of all ages will be enrolling in summer camps all across the globe. There are different kinds of fundraisers that summer camps can participate in such as a cool sneaker drive.
Starting a sneaker drive fundraiser is an easy and great way to raise money for your summer camp. On the dark side, fundraising can be overwhelming, complicated, time-consuming, and require a big cost upfront. On the bright side, when you’re starting fundraising with GotSneakers it is different but in a great way! Our sneaker drive fundraiser is simple and the benefits extend far beyond your camp.
Using a sneaker driver as a summer camp fundraiser it’s a win-win situation because you get to earn money and help this big, beautiful, blue, and green planet of ours. There are so many camp counselors, kids, and teens out there who have old sneakers that they don’t even wear anymore and they don’t plan to wear them ever again.
At GotSneakers, we’re making it socially and financially rewarding to contribute to a circular economy with our free sneaker recycling programs for individual sellers and organizations of all types and sizes. When you join our sneaker recycling community, you will be making a global impact plus you will earn money for every pair of sneakers you contribute.

At GotSneakers, our mission is to partner with the sneaker community to recycle and reuse quality pre-loved sneakers. Our sneaker drive fundraiser keeps sneakers out of landfills and reduces toxic chemicals from being released in our air and soil. All reusable sneakers from our sneaker drive fundraiser program are recirculated to secondhand markets so people can access quality, pre-owned footwear at affordable prices. All heavily used and damaged footwear is recycled to reuse materials or to convert waste into new energy.
Fun Sneaker Fact – Most people throw away their used sneakers every 125-200 days without ever thinking about recycling. Since sneakers are manufactured with materials that are not biodegradable, they remain in landfills or are incinerated, which leads to toxic chemicals in our air and soil. The process of manufacturing sneakers produces large amounts of CO2 which contribute to the serious effects of climate change and global warming. Recycling and reusing sneakers keep sneakers out of landfills, reduce the need for manufacturing new shoes and sneakers, and support a growing circular economy.
Your campers and staff can help make a difference by fundraising with GotSneakers. They will also learn about the benefits of recycling which they can then share the knowledge they learned with their family and friends when they return home from summer camp. The environmental benefits of recycling and reusing sneakers are significant. Since we started out on our mission, GotSneakers has stopped 75 million pounds of CO2 from entering the atmosphere, score!
