El Morro and Top of the World PTA’s are hosting a shoe drive April 22 through May 1 to raise funds for next school year’s 6th Grade Science Camp on Catalina Island.

El Morro 5th graders, seen here, will benefit from donations of old sneakers and cleats

The shoe donations will help support our schools and micro-businesses (tiny shoe stores) in developing countries, while staying out of landfills.

There is also an opportunity for 5th graders to become shoe ambassadors where they can collect these shoes from neighbors.
