Sneakers4Funds Becomes an Independent Company of Elsey Enterprises



ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Since its launch in early 2016, Sneakers4Funds has been a subsidiary of Funds2Orgs, the largest shoe drive fundraising company in North America. Due to unprecedented success, Sneakers4Funds announces that it has become an independent company, under the Elsey Enterprises suite of brands. Additionally, Tom Henderson takes over as the general manager of Sneakers4Funds.

"This strategic move further exemplifies our commitment to dominate the shoe drive fundraising market. Sneakers4Funds' prepaid mailer partnering with the U.S. Post Office is changing the way groups can fundraise by collecting gently worn, used and new athletic shoes. Supporters place athletic footwear in a prepaid mailing bag, drop the package at the post office and then the organization receives prompt payment," said Wayne Elsey, Founder and CEO, Elsey Enterprises. He added, "To further strengthen this separate business, Tom Henderson has been named general manager. Tom has been with Funds2Orgs since the first day and has been a catalyst for the growth of that brand and will now do the same for Sneakers4Funds."

"To further define our brands with distinct energy and strategy for each, we have spun off Sneakers4Funds to now operate independently," said Henderson. He continued, "Funds2Orgs is now the nation's largest shoe drive fundraising company, and we have similar plans for Sneakers4Funds in the 'athletic niche.' Marathon organizers have tested and applauded this seamless way to fundraise by handing out the prepaid mailer."

Elsey added, "Sneakers4Funds will soon dominate the athletic shoe drive fundraising market as well."
