Turtleback Elementary School will be holding a shoes and clothing drive called “Shoes With Heart”, until Jan. 30. They are collecting gently used shoes and clothing, with a collection bin located outside the school by the front office. When turning in shoes, please make sure they are in a bag with the teacher’s name and room number.
The shoes and clothes collected are weighed and purchased, then sent to impoverished countries to be sold at afforadable prices for that community. In addition to shoes and clothing, they will also accept purses, belts, backpacks, and hats.
Last year, Shoes With Heart collected $438 worth of clothes and shoes, with the funds going back to the school. The class that brings in the most shoes will get a milk and cookies party. If you have any questions contact
