The final count is in….. CLC collected 1,047 pairs of shoes for those less fortunate around the world! 33 houses of worship, businesses and clubs from the Northport/East Northport area collected approximately 15,000 pairs of shoes in total, making CLC one of the largest contributors. Thank you to everyone who helped this effort, especially confirmation students Zach Feingold & Eric Nigro.
Did you know that over 300 million children around the world are without shoes? Did you know that over 1.5 billion shoes lay idle in American closets – many of which can be saved from landfills by sending them to Soles 4 Souls? Each Sunday in the month of March a carton will be available to collect used shoes…..children, men’s & women’s shoes. We will accept sandals, sneakers, high heels, work shoes, flip flops, etc. Please use a sturdy rubber band or laces to keep the shoes together and start asking your neighbors and friends to check for shoes they no longer need or have out grown. The township of Huntington has set a goal of collecting 20,000 pairs of shoes in one month!
