“Helping Soles” Shoe Drive at Spanish Oaks ElementaryPublished by leslie.loftin on Wed, 04/25/2012 - 13:44
The students of Spanish Oaks Elementary had the opportunity to help raise money for New Life Orphanage in Ghana. Students were asked to collect used shoes and bring them to school. They are then the shoes are shipped to Africa where they are sold cheaply to street vendors, who then clean and repair the shoes to sell them in the market. The grade levels that collected the most shoes were fifth grade and sixth grade. Thank you to our student council for collecting and sorting the shoes and thank you to our students and their families for supporting this great charitable fund raiser. Our students collected 579 pounds of shoes.
