The students of Jaffray School had a sock hop in order to help the Soles4Souls foundation recently.
They collected new and used shoes to give relief to those who need shoes locally as well as victims of third world countries who need shoes and suffer from parasites such as ‘jiggers.’ These parasites can be avoided by wearing proper footwear.
The admission proceeds will help with the cost of shipping the shoes to the Nelson branch of Soles4Souls. The students will also be participating in a shoe drive on April 10. Shoe collections will continue until April 12.
