Barnett Elementary Used-Shoe Drive
The students of Mrs. Hanson’s 4th grade class wanted to do a service project to help students in Ghana Orphanage School raise money for basic supplies. The students researched the information and with approval of Mrs. Stoddard proceeded to plan and organize a school-wide used shoe drive. The students planned, advertised, collected, counted shoes from each class at the school, and filled a classroom full of shoes. The students enjoyed seeing the mountain of shoes grow each day after collecting from the classes. The school collected 1,975 pounds of shoes.
