Shoe Drive Campaign

Please help support the Middle School by donating used and new shoes at your schools collection box.
The WVW Middle School is starting a shoe drive campaign.  This is a great way to empty closets, save the environment, help micro-enterprises, and make some money. The proceeds will be used towards educational experiences outside of the classroom for our middle school students.  Please see the attached documents for additional information and a list of the micro-enterprise countries that will also benefit from our drive.

February 6th - The Middle school will kick off the campaign.
During the campaign our elementary buildings, high school, local colleges, synagogues, churches, gyms, and some businesses will also have collection boxes. 
We would like your assistance in making this campaign successful.
