The Goshen Band Boosters are hosting a shoe drive through April 9th and would love your help! They’re collecting gently used or new shoes which are then taken to other countries such as Haiti and given to micro-entrepreneurs.  The entrepreneurs refurbish the shoes into usable ones or other items of use and sell them to earn an income to help themselves and their families.  Take a look in your closets or wherever you may keep your shoes and see if you have a pair or two that you would be willing to donate.  You can even donate flip flops.  Bins will be placed around the school (as well as the Goshen area) that have a poster on them with the dos and don’ts of what is an acceptable shoe.  If you would like more information, or have any questions please feel free to contact Kristy Nissley at nissley1998@gmail.com.  Thank you for your help!
