Support the SOL Sneaker Drive

Student Organization of Latinos (SOL) is hosting a sneaker drive for the Guanin Center in the Dominican Republic!

We'll be collecting sneakers in sizes two - adult on the first floor of the SUB from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on April 10, 12, 17, 19, 24, 26 and May 1.

The Centro Cultural Guanín, Inc. organization, located in La Piedra, Dominican Republic, aims to help young people to discover, develop and achieve their full potential as adults, citizens and leaders. Our primary goal is to cultivate a community of leaders and role models for generations to come. Children are engaged in activities that challenge and enrich their minds, bodies and spirits, while also nurturing their self-esteem. Guanin’s safe and caring environment has enabled many young Dominicans to play, learn and develop valuable skills for life.

One of the center's project is to have the children be highly involved in sports as an alternative, but there are in great need of sneakers so come donate any size sneakers!

If you don't have sneakers to donate, there will a money donations box or you could go to https://www.gofundme.com/ fundacion-centro-cultural- guanin. All donations will go to the center to use for resources such as food, water, books, clothes, medicine, sneakers, etc.
