Cub Scout Pack 23 has organized a community service project at S.M. Rissler Elementary School to collect gym shoes for donation to Bright Futures Trenton. These shoes will be made available to students at the Back to School Event in August.
All scouts of Pack 23 will be participating in the drive, which includes a “Gym Shoe Dash” on the 19th of May at the school, where cub scouts will visit the classrooms of their respective grades to collect gym shoes from their fellow students. The shoes will then be piled in the common area, so the kids can see the results of their efforts.
Permission slips went home with students last week, so parents can designate if they would like their child to donate their gym shoes or not. If anyone would like to donate their child’s shoes and needs a permission form, please contact the school office or email Mrs. Critten at email@example.com.
