Orange students, staff and community members have joined forces to advance the anti-poverty mission of Soles4Souls by collecting new and used shoes for those less fortunate. Shoes have been collected at each of the school buildings. Although Moreland Hills Elementary School has wrapped up its collection drive, the Orange Inclusive Pre-school, Brady Middle School, and Orange High School are continuing to collect shoes through the end of the month.
Hundreds of shoes have already been collected, bound and inventoried by students in OHS teacher Carla Nazelli's vocational business classroom and have been taken to a donation site where they will be shipped for distribution to displaced Americans as well as abroad to school-aged children unable to attend school due to a lack of shoes.
Please continue to donate! You may drop off any type of shoes, no matter the condition or style....stilettos or work boots; flip-flops or sneakers; hi-tops, low tops, velcro, lace-up....Soles4Souls is grateful for all of them! You may drop them off at the main office at OIP, with any Builders Club representative at Brady Middle School, or in the collection bins at OHS. They will all be delivered to Soles4Souls, a global, not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact of poverty.
A huge "thank you" to all who have participated so far! Please continue to send in those shoes!
