“Thank You Notes” from
McIntosh Elementary School
SHARE A PAIR 2016 SUCCESS!
Thank you to all of our generous donors and the students of McIntosh Elementary School – we have done it again! With the help of the Rockford community, Annie’s Locker equipped all students at McIntosh Elementary School with new gym shoes and socks so they can participate in gym class and encourage them to live a healthy lifestyle! In addition, McIntosh students collected almost $600 this year that helped purchase over 60 shoes for a school in Cabo San Lucas that was essentially destroyed in the Odile Hurricane of 2014. Thank you for making the 2016 Annie’s Locker Share a Pair Annual Fund/Shoe drive a success – we could not do it without you!

“Many times our students have needs that are not met at home, and we are always looking for donations. The shoes we received were not only brand new, but also VERY attractive for our little ones. It means so much to our staff, students and parents that there are organizations such as yourself that assist with the needs of our schools.”
“I appreciate my friend Anna for telling me about this organization. She runs with the Road Runners and encouraged me to run and start living healthy when I was going through a hard time. I was new to this area with no job, four kids and depressed. Running is giving my life back and I just wanna keep going. I did the Biggest Loser 5K – it was great time – 37 mins couldn’t believe it.”
“At the time, I didn’t know just how much that training program would mean to me and my family. During our camping trip, I would often reflect as we climbed hundreds of stairs in and out of canyons, that it wouldn’t have been possible if I hadn’t done the training program. And I wouldn’t have been able to do the training program without Annie’s Locker.”
“I really appreciate your support. The shoes are very comfortable and fit perfectly. I hope that all of your lives are blessed.”
