NCS Middle Collects for Soles4Souls

Before Nashville Christian School students left for summer break, the middle school finished up the school year with a service project for Soles4Souls.

Sixth-grade teacher Kathryn Gilbert organized the shoe drive, which collected 850 pairs of shoes to be sent to the Soles4Souls inventory.

"This was a great project because the students got to donate something they didn't necessarily need, but knew that others would need and benefit from," Gilbert said. "They were also amazed when they saw the pile of all the shoes we had collected."

The shoe drive was set up as a contest for the middle school grades with the fifth grade taking the prize, which included a week of wearing flip-flops to school.
