In collaboration with Kohls' Noblesville store, Don't Waist Your Belt can purchase new belts at a reduced price. Click on the Donate button at the top of the page for a tax deductible donation.
Requested by Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS), our goal is to collect or purchase 3000 new or used belts for the 2015-16 school year and distribute them throughout the Indianapolis Public School system to underprivileged students.
Watch Olivia's Interview on IndyStyle:
Twelve year-old Olivia Keith learned that Indianapolis Public School (IPS) students need to wear a belt as part of their school uniform. Don't Waist Your Belt is a program designed to collect new and used belts from adults and other students to help hundreds, if not thousands, of IPS students complete their school uniform so that they won't be suspended from not wearing one.
Do you know of a business, organization, youth group, school club, sports team, etc., that would be willing to sponsor an IPS school by collecting 50 used belts for my Don't Waist Your Belt organization? We have collection boxes and flyers. Please send me a message on the Contact Us page, or call my mom at 317-446-2698.
