SMHS Science Olympiad Wants Your Shoes

Science Olympiad Wants Your Shoes
The Smoky Mountain High School Science Olympiad team wants your gently worn shoes. Science Olympiad is a national science competition, and the SMHS team needs your gently worn shoes to help raise funds for supplies and competition travel. The team will earn money for the shoes they collect which are then shipped to micro-enterprise owners around the world to help them set up and support businesses selling used shoes. The program supports upcycling/recycling efforts, businesses in developing nations, and fundraising efforts for school groups, a win for all concerned. Shoes must be in matched pairs (no single shoes, please), clean, and in gently used or new condition.
This is also a great opportunity for you to find a new home for all those great shoes that you haven't worn in years. Drop off your gently worn shoes to SMHS by Mar. 10 to support the Science Olympiad team, and free up some closet space at the same time.
