Who is Bonnie?
IMG_0014 Bonnie VanschindelMeet Bonnie Vanschindel, Bonnie is part of an political organization that hosts fundraisers to collect money for much needed causes!
By day, Bonnie helps run her organization and is heavily involved in her community. By night, she collects shoes to help High School students reach their goals in hopes to pay for college one day. This was her second time hosting an Angel Bins Fundraiser. With that, Bonnie managed to collect over 2,000+ pounds of shoes! The funds that she received through Angel Bins was put into a foundation that grants scholarships to her local High School in La Habra, California. Bonnie awards over $2,000 in scholarships. But wait, it doesn’t stop there! Bonnie also makes sure that $1,000 of those proceeds also go towards buying diapers for young single mothers who are in need of some assistance.
The difference that Bonnie makes hosting an Angel Bins drive is truly remarkable. Not only is she doing greatness in her community, but she also is helping hundreds of people around the world receive a very much needed pair of shoes. When you host an Angel Bins Fundraiser, you can be making all the difference in the world. Those very shoes that Bonnie collected are sent to places like Africa, South America and Central America. Particularly, they are currently on the feet of those who don’t have the luxury of owning multiple pairs of shoes. For one thing, Bonnie knows this and is the reason why Angel Bins has the opportunity to do what we do. Helping those in need!
