[nectar_dropcap color="#91c14f"]Y[/nectar_dropcap]ou know we love giving back to our community, and one of the ways we like to do that is through our annual shoe drive to support YWCA-Hanover! This year, we hope to top all of our past efforts, but we need your help!


YWCA-Hanover supports local children and their families. “It was March of 1920 that the Girls Club of Hanover acted upon a motion to form the YWCA in Hanover.” These words were written in a history pamphlet for the YWCA’s 50th anniversary. Their programs have changed over time to respond to the needs of the community and have ranged from fitness programs for women, gymnastics for girls, dances and clubs for teenage girls, women’s clubs and classes, as well as the development of the now-essential domestic violence program we call Safe Home. Their childcare programs continue to be a large part of meeting their mission of empowering women and serving families.

Many of the YWCA-Hanover advocates are active within the community, presenting education programs to help prevent domestic violence. YWCA-Hanover has truly made a lasting difference in the lives of these people and in our community, and it’s our privilege to help however we can to support them.  

Want to know how you can help?

Bring in your gently worn, used, and new shoes — all sizes are appreciated! The shoes will be provided to the children and their families of the Child Care Services and other YWCA-Hanover programs.

YWCA-Hanover also has an updated wish list of items that are most needed. So if you want to donate any of these items, you can drop them off at the office during our shoe drive, and we will make sure they are delivered! Bring your donations to our office during regular business hours from 12/10/19 - 1/31/20.

PLUS — All donations will receive an extra entry into our quarterly drawing for our patients! You don't want miss your chance to win a trip to Great Wolf Lodge indoor water park.

Charity of the Month: Focus Foundation

[vc_row type="in_container" full_screen_row_position="middle" scene_position="center" text_color="dark" text_align="left" overlay_strength="0.3"][vc_column column_padding="no-extra-padding" column_padding_position="all" background_color_opacity="1" background_hover_color_opacity="1" column_shadow="none" width="1/1" tablet_text_alignment="default" phone_text_alignment="default" column_border_width="none" column_border_style="solid"]

[nectar_dropcap color="#91c14f"]I[/nectar_dropcap]t's that time again.


Time to show our support for the people of our community who work so hard to do good for our neighbors. April's Charity of the Month is the Focus Foundation. The Focus Foundation supports individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Intellectual or Developmental Disorder (IDD) by helping them gain a sense of community and independence through volunteer work and community activities. More than 3.5 million Americans have ASD and the Center for Disease Control has estimated that ASD is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the U.S. We at Shoe Orthodontics want to show our love and support to the ASD community by giving to the Focus Foundation as our Charity of the Month

Here's what we're doing and how you can help:

  • We are hosting a community yard sale as a fundraiser May 18th 8-2pm at 1191 Eichelberger Street, Hanover PA. The event is rain or shine.  In order to do this, we're accepting donations to be used at the yard sale. You bring, we sell, and we will give the money to the Focus Foundation on behalf of the staff and patients at Shoe Orthodontics. Donations can be dropped off at our office Monday - Friday normal business hours. We will also have tie-dyed t-shirts and handmade earrings for sale at the yard sale. 100% of the proceeds go directly to the Focus Foundation.
  •  Earrings are being sold in the office $10 per pair, 100% of the money raised goes directly back to Focus Foundation!

It's a simple project, but one that will benefit a charity that supports children and adults with Autism along with the families who love and care for them.
