In 2013, we set an ambitious goal to collect 500 pairs of gym shoes in less than 1 month. Between shoe donations and $2,875 in cash donations, we met our goal of obtaining 500 pairs of new youth gym shoes for the International Day of Peace and needy students! Before distribution to students this week, the shoes were part of the International Day of Peace “Walking in Their Shoes” labyrinth at Rockford University in September.
Haskell school was one of the schools to receive shoes. This 5 year old was first to receive. He was actually a whole size larger than the ones he was wearing to school.
