Students collect shoes for ‘Soles4Souls’ event

Shoes will be sent all over the world to those in need

A group of local students is helping those in need across the country and even worldwide

The Leo Club in La Crescent organized a shoe drive for the ‘Soles4Souls’ organization that gives shoes to people all over the world.     

On Sunday the students boxed up the shoes and are getting ready to ship them out.

No matter what type of shoe was donated, either a tennis shoe or dress shoe, all were welcome and appreciated.

“It’s really awesome to see a small town in Minnesota can bring such joy to many people who are in need and such simple things like shoes bring so much joy to them,” said Rachel Schuster, a senior at La Crescent High School.

During the shoe drive the club collected about 500 shoes.
