BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The three honor societies (National Honor Society, National Technical Honor Society and the National Honor Society for Dance Arts) at Somerset Vocational & Technical High School recently teamed up to run the Max Cure Foundation’s Dunk Your Kicks campaign.

National Honor Society for Dance Arts Advisor Maureen Glennon spoke of the program’s success saying, “SCVTHS collected 11 boxes of sneakers which equates to approximately 350 pairs!”

According to the Dunk Your Kicks! website, “The Max Cure Foundation’s Dunk Your Kicks campaign collects these sneakers, and then sells them to an international recycler of affordable clothing. They then resell the shoes as affordable footwear to developing nations. The Max Cure Foundation will receive up to $1.00 per pair based on the quality of sneakers collected which goes towards advancing The Max Cure Foundation’s Roar Beyond Barriers program providing financial support in the form of gift cards to low-income and military families who have children battling disease.”
