The first Scottsdale Waterfront Pop-Up Charity Shop benefiting Sunnyslope Youth Center Enrichment Programs will take place Friday and Saturday, Sept. 4 and 5 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Armed with truckloads of donated brand new athletic shoes and an overwhelming desire to give back, Lori Goldberg’s heart belies her diminutive size. The Paradise Valley resident founded Global Family Philanthropy in 2009 to provide basic needs for impoverished children in Haiti.
To make this Back-to-School Pop-Up Charity venture a reality, several angels had to intervene. First, Shawn Esmaili, founder of Youth Against Poverty, donated over 900 pair of brand new children’s, women’s, and men’s athletic shoes from top manufacturers such as Asics, Puma, Converse, Adidas, Saucony and Vans.
The next piece fell into place when Scottsdale Waterfront donated space for the Pop-Up Charity in a prime retail location between Culinary Dropout and David’s Bridal, at 7135 E. Camelback, Suite 115.
