The K-1 Elementary recently partnered with Soles4Souls, a non-profit organization that collects gently-used shoes to give to people around the globe. For many of the recipients, these shoes will be their first pair. Two-hundred pairs of shoes, along with $1 for each donation to cover shipping costs, were collected during the week of November 18th. Teacher Amanda Upp thought of this as a wonderful philanthropic connection to the current Artist in Residence dance program — ”dancing with our feet and providing shoes for souls around the world.” Timing of the shoe drive was scheduled during the week of parent-T\teacher conferences to encourage participation.
The K-1 Elementary would like to thank all of the families that contributed to this endeavor!
If you would like to continue giving, shoes can be donated locally or sent to one of Soles4Souls warehouse facilities. To find out more, visit soles4souls.org.
