Each year, the CFHLA Cares Collection Drive supports homeless students in the Central Florida area (Orange and Osceola counties) with a holiday-themed collection drive. In 2018, this holiday sneaker drive, held in conjunction with the 2018 CFHLA Hospitality Gala at Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate collected 940 NEW pairs of shoes.

This collection drive was initiated in 2013 when CFHLA was made aware, by the school districts, of the need for new shoes for the over 10,000 homeless students in Central Florida.
CFHLA would like to thank the membership and gala attendees for their support of this collection drive.
