The SCHS Science Society is conducting a shoe drive through Feb. 17 to raise funds for club activities, including building rockets to compete in the Team America Rocketry Challenge, taking students to Trees for Tomorrow, and to cover transportation costs for students to attend presentations and competitions. SCHS Science Society organization will earn funds based on the total weight of the shoes collected; Funds2Orgs will purchase all of the donated footwear. Those dollars will benefit the club and community, as it is the intention of the club to donate a portion of the funds collected back to our community. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used or new shoes at any of the drop-off locations: Hillcrest Primary, Olga Brener Intermediate, Shawano Community Middle School, Shawano Community High School and the Shawano Police Department. All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of microenterprise partners in developing nations. Funds2Orgs helps impoverished people start, maintain and grow businesses in countries such as Haiti, Honduras and other nations in Central America and Africa. Proceeds from the shoe sales are used to feed, clothe and house their families.
