"Share Your Soles"
Shoes collected are used to start and maintain micro enterprises in developing nations. Individuals re-purpose and sell used and new shoes, offering financial support and sustainability for themselves and their families. In other words, the youth collect shoes from the community, and then they pair and bag them. Once they get 300 bags of shoes, the bags are sent to third world countries so that those people can start their own businesses to support themselves and their families.
This Shoe Project is what FUNDS our Junior Leadership Academy Program in the summer with no charge to our youth.
October, November & December 2016 Kolton Lee Solomon used the Shoe Project for his Eagle Scout Project. He finished up with over 206 hours on the project and touching over 10,000 shoes. Kolton got his Eagle Scout award Feb 28, 2017. ANY Scout looking for an Eagle Project, please contact: Vicky Solomon firstname.lastname@example.org
