Prarie Striders Shoe Drive

Prairie Striders running club of Brookings, SD is joining with Soles4Souls to collect new and used shoes for the needy.

Strider board member Lyle Claussen has been working on a low-key approach with the group since last summer and collected 103 pairs. Shoes can be left at the office of physical therapist Chuck McCullough in the Avera Brookings Medical Clinic, 400 22nd Ave., and Bartling's Nike Shoes, 410 Fourth St.

Claussen said the shoes should have "some life left" in them, but they need not be just running shoes.

"Soles4Souls accepts dress shoes, men and women's , work boots. About anything that people have, they can use," Claussen said.
