The Senior High National Honor Society will be collecting new, gently used and worn shoes as a fundraiser for families in developing countries that will re-purpose the shoes and then sell them in order to support themselves.
There are no restrictions to the types of shoes that can be collected. Anything from cleats and sneakers to heels and flip flops can be collected in any size from baby shoes to adult shoes. The only requirement to the collection is that the shoes must still be able to be worn and no single shoes can be turned in.
Collections will begin Monday, April 24th at Central, Rommelt and the high school. The shoe drive will end on Friday, May 19th. The Senior High National Honor Society hopes you will be able to participate and thanks you for your support. ... See MoreSee Less
