 Welcome to the HVC Shoe Drive Campaign! About the Harmonious Volunteer Center can be found at our website: www.harmoniousvolunteercenter.org.  About our HVC Shoe Drive Campaign:  As advocates to find alternatives for General Assistance in Pennsylvania we have engaged in receiving Shoe Donations for the purpose of Fund Raising to create an Economic Stimulus in under served neighborhoods and we are becoming very effective.  Now calling all churches to join our HVC 30/10 plan for fund raising.  There are other reasons for our interest such as: Improving Air Quality by diverting Shoes from the Landfills to reduce Methane/Greenhouse Gases; Helping people in the United States and in 3rd World Countries receive the benefits of receiving shoes in times of need; and responsible recycling for re-purposing materials used to manufacture shoes.  We have paid training for individuals who receive income from the work generated by shoe collections which means we are creating Jobs!!!  Our Shoe Drive Facilitators are conducting Environmental Education to establish an awareness and sustainable outcomes.
