Staff and students at Herb Campbell Public School recently completed their Soles4Souls Shoe Drive, which kicked off on May 2. Inspired by the book A Good Trade by Alma Fullerton, the month-long shoe drive was a collaborative initiative of the Me to We Club, Junior ISELP and a grade one class. Staff and students brought in gently-used shoes and collected a total of 850 pairs of shoes!
These shoes will go to the Soles4Souls warehouse, where they will be sorted and donated to people in developing countries. Once there, the shoes will be sold through micro-enterprises and in turn, the money will end up going back into the community to promote sustainability. We were proud to be a part of this campaign and appreciate the efforts and generousity of our staff and students.
