As a kick-off into the holiday season, the school’s Key Club service organization will participate in the “Got Sole” project, a non-profit organization where new and gently used socks and shoes are collected and then donated to local areas in need, including hurricane and flood victims in Hampton Roads and on the Eastern Shore.

According to gotsoleproject.org, their mission is to offer faith, hope and love through shoes by collecting new and gently used shoes for men, women and children.  The project accepts new socks in all sizes. Furthermore, monetary donations are always welcome, to cover the cost for truck rental and gas to deliver the shoes to the needy.

Key Club chose to partner with this charity for a second year due to last year’s success. Students donated over 200 pairs of shoes and 55 pairs of socks to the project and plan to collect and distribute more this year.

Key Club plans to collect shoes and socks from Monday, Dec. 3, through Friday, Dec. 14.  Donations can be made outside of room 227.

“I am so excited to participate in this event again. Whatever organization we choose to assist, [Key Club] members make it their mission to make a difference in their community,” Key Club sponsor Maria Faircloth said.
