Our Shoe Drive is kickin'! We have now collected 46 bags...or 1150 pairs, total! Our goal is 100 bags of shoes or 2500 pairs. Due to unforseen circumstances, the organization that distributes the shoes to third world countries has extended our deadline until 7/30. So, we have 3 weeks to go. Please talk to your co-workers, neighbors, church members, clubs, etc., to help us get to our goal. Remember that we need clean shoes with no stains, mildew or tears. Also, if they need to be laced up, please include the laces.
We have the following drop-off locations:
Watauga Humane Society
Bare Bones Boutique
241 Wonderland Trail, Blowing Rock (in the carport)
