The Lloyd Road Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) will hold a shoe drive through Oct. 27 to raise funds to support the educational and recreational needs of its students and teachers.

Donations will be accepted at the Matawan Municipal Offices, Broad Street, Matawan; Gurlie Locks, 419 Route 34, Matawan; Miles of Smiles,14 Luppatatong Ave, Keyport; and Miles of Smiles, 900 Union Ave., Union Beach. Lloyd School, Lloyd Road, Matawan will accept donations from students, parents and staff only.

The PTO will earn funds based on the total weight of the pairs of gently worn, used and new shoes collected, as Funds2Orgs will issue a check for the collected shoes. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected are used to feed, clothe and house their families.
