Shoe Drive

The shoe drive is back!The 7th grade class at St. Cecilia School is holding a shoe drive from now until the end of May.  Simply donate any new or gently used pairs of shoes…we will accept any size and type of shoes; from infant to adult sizes, from athletic to dress shoes, even slippers, boots, & flip flops! Collection boxes will be placed in the Gathering Space, School Office, Parish Office, and preschool hallway.  These shoes will be given to a charitable organization that will distribute these shoes to developing and third world countries throughout the world.  In turn, this organization will pay the students $0.40/lb. for all collected shoes.  These funds will go to help offset the cost of their 8th grade trip next year.  It’s a win-win for everyone involved!  The shoes will go to communities throughout the world where they are much needed; our students will raise money for their trip expenses; and you will free up closet space!  Thanks in advance for any shoe donations that you can give!
