North Newton Collects Shoes for Soles for Souls

North Newton is collecting shoes for Soles for Souls.  This organization takes new and gently used shoes and donates them to those people in our country and around the world that do not have any.  They also use these shoes to teach entrepreneurship and small business.  According to Kelly Jarvis, teacher at North Newton, “As a global school, we are always looking for ways to reach communities around the world.  We will be placing boxes at each school location from March 20th-April 28th.  We encourage you to share this video with your students and invite them to help others as well through the power of a pair of shoes.”  If you have any questions, please contact Kelly Jarvis, Jamesia Brown, Jill Hager, or Christina Recker.
