Helping Others

Dorthy Pollett’s fifth grade home room class was the class to donate the most shoes at the Taylor Elementary School’s Ozark Water Project shoe drive. Each student donated at least 5 pair of shoes for a total of over 100 shoes. Staff and students met the goal of 500 pair of shoes donated for this mission. Ozark Water projects export the shoes to distributors in South America. Haiti and Kenya. Shoe resale offers affordable shoes to people who may not have shoes. Funds generated from the shoe sale are used to purchase well-digging rigs, water purification systems and other supplies to bring clean, fresh water to those in need.
