Donate, Save the Planet, and raise money for NPES PTA at the same time!
For the month of October we are asking every NPES student to donate women’s, men’s, or children’s shoes. We will accept a wide variety of shoes including tennis shoes, casual shoes, and any other type of shoe that is in wearable condition.
All shoes must come in pairs and be tied together by the laces or a rubber band. Please do not use tape.
Our goal: 20,000 pairs of shoes = 37 pairs per student
** Ask your friends, family, neighbors, employers, civic groups, or church to help you collect shoes. We will provide collection boxes if your employer/church/ group is willing to collect shoes on your behalf**
Tie shoes in pairs and drop them off at the collection box in the main hallway.
The PTA will host a school wide celebration if we reach our goal!
