A by-product of the shoe drive is that the shoes are donated to micro-entrepreneurs in underdeveloped countries for them to generate a business to help sustain themselves and their community. Collection boxes will be distributed around the school and community for easy drop off.  So please donate your gently worn shoes, sneakers, boots, sandals, etc.. for a worthy cause.
