A Drop in the Box...
The PTA is excited to participate in EDGE OUTREACH
Look for the GIANT drop box at the front entrance to the school and drop off ALL types
of your unused/unwanted shoes.
This is a great opportunity to teach our students about the positive impact they can have
on the world with something as simple as donating a pair of shoes. Help us fill the box
and know that your one pair of donated shoes serves multiple purposes:
* Building the economy of a local community.
* Providing affordable footwear.
* Protecting landfills.
* Initiating sustainable water projects.
(Not to mention helping you maintain a clean closet!)
