The drop off for shoes will be by the main gym doors at Jonathan Dayton High School (around the back of the school).

The collected shoes will be distributed to people and places hurt by natural disasters nationwide and worldwide through an organization called Soles4Souls.
If you cannot make it to the school on either Saturday and would like to help, please bring your shoe donation to the main office drop box next week during school hours or you can drop your donation at Julie Frank’s house at 6 Nelson Place and her daughter will take them to the high school on Saturday.
