Shoe Collection

Highland Middle School is collecting new or used shoes for the Solea Water Project!  Shoes are used to raise funds to provide clean water around the world.


Gather all the shoes you don't wear anymore and give them a second life. All types are accepted including athletic, sandals, boots, and more as long as they do not have holes in them.  Just rubber band or tie each pair together and place them in our donation box in the front entrance by Friday, April 6.
