Youth Joins Cause to Help Save Soles

With a series of storms wreaking havoc on the Gulf Coast, one local student has been collecting shoes that could find their way to the victims of the storms.

Kamron Krieger, a senior at Dallastown Area High School, began collecting shoes for Soles4Souls in early September as part of his graduation project. He has set up collection boxes at the two Gold's Gym locations in York County.

"I hope to collect a box full at each place," Krieger said.

Kamron, 17, estimated that about 100 pairs of shoes had been dropped off so far. He's hoping to gather 500 pairs by the end of the September.

Kamron Krieger's collection boxes are set up inside two area Gold's Gym locations:
--- 298 Pauline Drive in York Township
--- 2340 North George St. in Manchester Township

The drive lasts until the end of September.
