Mothers for Porter County Kids 2010 Winter Boot Drive is underway, and they need your help. kids-boots
Donations are down 75% and requests are up,” said Nicole Rossmann, co-founder, Mothers for Porter County Kids. “So far this year we have had almost 600 families request winter boots for their elementary school children. We are seeing more and more families each year who simple do not have the funds available to purchase winter boots for their children.”

A donation of $25 will provide one needy elementary child in Porter County with a pair of new winter boots. Mothers for Porter County Kids is urging the community to consider making a monetary donation, of any amount, to help the children in our community.

All boots are distributed to children through their elementary schools. Any family in Porter County, not able to purchase boots for their elementary school child, should contact their school’s counselor.

Founded in 2004 by Erin Burton, Nicole Rossmann and Laura Steele, Mothers for Porter County Kids has provided new winter boots to over 2,200 children in our community.

Mothers for Porter County Kids winter boot drive runs from now until December 4.

Monetary donations to purchase winter boots for needy elementary school children in Porter County can be sent to: Mothers for Porter County Kids, P.O. Box 185, Valparaiso, IN 46384.
