Pasco Tax Collector Gathers Shoes, Socks for Students
The “Two Good Soles” campaign is in its third year.
PASCO COUNTY – The Pasco County Tax Collector’s Office is once again participating in the new shoes and socks collection campaign to assist local students and families in need.
A collaborative effort between Pasco County government and the school district, the “Two Good Soles” campaign, which is in its third year, is seeking to collect as many new pairs of shoes and socks as possible. The tax collector’s five offices in Pasco County will be collection sites for these donations between now and Oct. 8, the final day of the collection.
“It is heartbreaking to know that children come to school without socks or shoes in good repair,” Pasco Tax Collector Mike Fasano said. “I am pleased that our office is once again part of this countywide effort to collect as many pairs of footwear as possible. I encourage everyone who is able to please stop by one of our offices and leave a donation. Every item will go to a student in need who attends a school in Pasco County.”
The need for shoes is primarily at the middle and high school level, although shoes for elementary school students will also be accepted. While the tax collector’s office will accept donations of shoes and socks that are new and unused, the school district reports that the sizes most in need are children’s shoes 9 and up, adult shoes of all sizes and socks of any size. It is recommended that sneakers, shoes and socks be of a “neutral” color, but all donations of new items will be accepted. No flip-flops or open-toes shoes, please.
If you are interested in making a donation leave your donation in the labeled collection box near the door at one of the agency’s five offices:
- New Port Richey – 8731 Citizens Drive, Room 120, New Port Richey
- Gulf Harbors – 4720 U. S. Highway 19, New Port Richey
- Land O’ Lakes – 4111 Land O’Lakes Blvd. (Hwy. 41), Land O’Lakes
- Wesley Chapel – 4610 Pet Lane, C 101, Lutz
- Dade City – 14236 6th Street, Room 100, Dade City
