That’s a lot of shoes! Close to 500 to be exact! During the month of February, Crestview Preparatory School’s Spirit Council encouraged the student body to bring in their old shoes to be donated to the Soles for Souls program. Many of the shoes will be sent off to adults and children in need, but some of the rubber from the shoe bottoms will be reused and recycled into playground equipment.
Talk about giving shoes a new life! Crestview students sifted, sorted, counted, and tied them in pairs. Many thanks to the families for participating in the shoe drive. Next time you’re at a playground, look down at the rubber floor underneath the slides… you might be standing on your old Nikes!
