School Holds Shoe Drive for Needy

BILLINGS -

Meadowlark Elementary School is holding a shoe drive to help those who are less fortunate overseas.

Fourth grade teacher, Amy Leffler heard about it online, and wanted to teach her kids to give back.

Leffler said they're working with a Florida company called Funds2Orgs that repurpose shoes, and sends them out to third world countries.

They have collected 375 pairs of shoes, and hope to get a thousand pairs.

"We know that there's so many people who have nothing, and collecting old shoes out of our closet is a really nice way to teach kids to give back to others," said Leffler.

The deadline is February 14th, and Leffler also said that for every shoe they donate they get a percentage back to the school.
