Holley Interact Club collects 285 pairs of shoes for Soles4Souls
HOLLEY – Brooklyn Bartholomew, a senior at Holley Jr./Sr. High School, is pictured with some of the shoes donated in a shoe drive to benefit Soles4Souls.
The Holley Interact Club decided for its Global Community Service project to partner with Soles4Souls, a non-profit organization with a mission to create sustainable jobs and provide relief through the distribution of shoes and clothing around the world.
Bartholomew and the Interact Club set a goal of collecting 100 pairs of shoes. Letters were sent home with all Elementary School students asking for donation of gently used shoes. Donation boxes were set up in the High School and in the Elementary School.
At the end of the drive, 285 pairs of shoes were donated by the Holley community and Brooklyn delivered them all to Soles4Souls on Friday.
