PS 107 Shoe Drive for the STAR Project!
Thu, Apr 18 1:47pm
PS107
Happy (early) Spring Break Everyone!
 
Please take some time over vacation to pull out shoes you no longer need. During the week of May 6th, we'll be collecting adult and children's shoes to donate to refugees living in Yemen, Somalia, Jordan and Bangladesh. Soccer cleats are also greatly appreciated! 
 
Watch this video to learn more. 
 
Mark Grashow, a PS 107 grandparent who runs the project, will be visiting 4th and 5th grade classes prior to the collection drive. A small group of 4th and 5th graders will help pack the shoes into boxes. 
 
And we'll need volunteers! Shifts include: Mon-Fri 8:20-8:45AM at school.
You'll be moving each morning's collection into storage and then you can race to work.
And on a weekend in late May or early June, we'll need drivers to help transport the boxes to a shipping container in Greenpoint.
 
Email Emily Hager (emilybhager@gmail.com) with questions.
 
Many thanks,
