Elementary School Collects More Than 1,000 Pairs of Shoes

From The Reporter
L. SALFORD - Students collect shoes for needy

The Lower Salford Elementary School fifth held a shoe drive for Soles4Souls the shoe charity, an organization that collects shoes and distributes them in the United States and across the world.

Hughes Transport, a Lansdale-based moving company, agreed to transport shoes to their destination in Alabama.

Their partnership enabled the project to reach its full potential, allowing participation by the entire school.

The fifth-graders gave up their recess to collect, bundle, box and count shoes.

They collected more than 1,000 pairs for the less fortunate.

They also saved these shoes from being thrown away and filling up landfills.
