The shoes will be shipped via the organization funds2orgs to developing nations around the globe to supply micro-economies. This was a fundraiser for Saint Mary School that involved no selling on the part of the students or parish. Students reached out to their family, friends, and parishioners for donations of gently worn shoes of all shapes, sizes, and styles and response was overwhelming. The students then packed over 140 pairs of shoes for pick-up.
