For the second consecutive year, McCreary Central Junior ROTC students collected shoes to send to the those in need in Haiti. This year, the students advertised the project, set up a drop off station in the school, and collected over a 100 pairs (seven boxes) of shoes. The tradition of collecting shoes for Haiti began last year following Haiti’s devastating earthquake. “Shoes for Haiti” now continues as an annual project for McCreary Central’s Junior ROTC students.
“It was a heart-wrenching time for the people in Haiti when the earthquake hit,” one student observed. “It makes us feel good to help people in need.”
Another student agreed.
“It is important for us to do this because it spreads goodwill and kindness across the globe,” that student chimed in. “It makes you feel good to help people, and it makes them feel good, too.”
Spearheading the project and pictured from left to right are: First Sergeant Garry Galloway, Megan Sellers, Haley Yancey, Kaylee Stephens, Alyssa York, and Aaron Allen. Student Lillian Fee, who was also instrumental in the project, is not pictured.
