For the third year in a row Payless ShoeSource has renewed its Payless Inspiring Possibilities Scholarship Program to benefit the Hispanic Scholarship Fund (HSF). Starting September 1, Payless will sell two limited-edition bracelets for $2 each and the retailer will donate 100 percent of the net sales to establish scholarships to support the higher-education of Hispanic youth.
With a minimum guaranteed donation of $37,000 for the 2010 program, the Payless Inspiring Possibilities Scholarship Program will help raise money nationwide by selling the $2 on-trend bracelets at select stores and on Payless.com, while supplies last. Through this program, Payless, along with its customers, continue to help the Hispanic youth in their pursuit to achieve their educational goals.
“We are thrilled to once again collaborate with the Hispanic Scholarship Fund to create opportunities for Hispanic students to pursue their college education,” said Gaby Alban, spokesperson for Payless ShoeSource. “We want people to join us and buy both — even many — bracelets to show their support for this year’s Inspiring Possibilities Scholarship program.”
Last year’s Payless Inspiring Possibilities Scholarship program made possible for Payless to award 12 HSF scholarships to students from all over the country for the 2010-2011 academic year.
