Annual Two Good Soles Drive Doubles Previous Years’ Donations
Pasco Government & Constitutional Offices collect over 2,200 shoes for local students
Record-setting generosity turned Two Good Soles into more than two thousand pairs of shoes for Pasco County children. The annual, friendly competition between Pasco County Government and Constitutional Office staffs collected 2,264 shoes and 6,609 pairs of socks to donate to Pasco County Schools.
“These phenomenal efforts will impact our students more than you will ever know,” said School Board Chairman Cynthia Armstrong. “On behalf of the schoolchildren who will benefit from this generosity, I want to thank everyone who was involved.”
The 3rd Annual Two Good Soles Shoes and Socks Drive smashed last years’ results (1,130 shoes/3,260 socks) as well as this year’s goal of 1,500 shoes set by Public Services Assistant County Administrator Cathy Pearson.
Pasco County and Constitutional Office staff gathered at Wendell Krinn Technical High School in New Port Richey October 10, 2018 to officially donate the footwear and tally the results.
Pasco County’s Internal Services Branch won the trophy for the most donations from County branches. The Property Appraiser’s Office won for most donations collected by a constitutional office, just surpassing the Tax Collector’s Office.
The Public Services Branch placed 1st in the decorated collection box competition with the Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Department’s “Playground Box.” The Property Appraiser won 2nd place with its “Big Red Shoe.”
