To the generous residents of Lake Orion,

Orion Area Youth Assistance would like to thank the members of the Lake Orion community who donated shoes to our first ever Shoe Drive fundraiser during this past April and May.

Our goal was to collect 2,500 pairs of shoes and we were successful!

We are working with an organization called Funds 2 Orgs who will pay us per pound for the shoes, helping us to raise money to support students right here in Lake Orion.

We will be using the funds for various programs including scholarships for summer camp and enrichment activities for Lake Orion students.

We look forward to also being able to offer our Family Fun Fest during the 2021-2022 school year and new programs to support students and families as well.

Watch our Facebook page and our website ( for more information about the events we will host in the upcoming year so you can see all the great things we are doing thanks to the support from all of you!

A special thanks to Lake Orion Community Schools, St. Joseph Catholic School and local businesses who allowed us to collect in their locations: API Consulting, Northern Wholesale Flooring, Heartfelt Impressions, Dollar Tree, Oxford Bank, the Orion Township Public Library, Broadway Embroidery, the Orion Center, Counelis Farm Bureau Insurance, Lake Orion United Methodist Church, Tire Warehouse, Genisys Credit Union, KinderCare and Lucky’s Natural Foods.
