Too Many T’s
Got 2 Many T’s? Of course you do! The Ministry of Caring would love to relieve you of your surplus. They give them to homeless Delawareans who visit their Samaritan Outreach Center for a shower and a change of clothes. Your extra tee shirt will go to someone truly in need. Now, isn’t that a good way to solve the problem? So, bring your extra tee shirts to the Delaware Marathon™ and look for signs saying “2 Many T’s.” Deposit them in the boxes you find there. Visit our website www.ministryofcaring.org or email [email protected]
MORE Foundation Group
The Delaware Marathon will collect your used running shoes and donate them to the More Foundation. Many people ask, “what happens to all these shoes?” The shoes are sold in major metro areas to vendors who in turn create jobs and help improve the quality of life in cities. The vast majority of Africans cannot afford new shoes. The proceeds from the sale of the shoes provides training and tools to the poorest rural farmers in Africa. In addition collecting used shoes and selling them to locals in Ghana provides additional environmental benefits. So many shoes sit in dark closets, forgotten and never worn, and then end up in landfills. Reusing these shoes further promotes the global efforts to reuse and recycle.
