It's that time of year again, we will be collecting footwear to be donated rather than ending up in the landfill as a part of Waste Reduction Week.
Footwear will be collected the week of Oct. 21 – 25. Any type of footwear can be donated, in any condition. Students get one ballot per pair of footwear donated for a chance to win great prizes! Tie laces together or put an elastic around each pair, but don’t worry if you don’t have a rubber band, the Green Team can do that at school!
This initiative has already been a win..24 000 pairs of shoes were shipped last week, 12,500 of those came from last year’s drive alone. Our schools are making a HUGE impact. Not to mention, we estimate about 8 000 pairs were also kept with in our community.
