Brant’s class gives soles for souls

Fifth- and sixth-grade students in Kari Brant’s advisory class at Kaleidoscope Charter School in Otsego collected 194 pairs of shoes for Soles4Souls, an organization that collects and distributes shoes to people living in extreme poverty and recovering from natural disasters.
The shoe charity provides one pair of shoes to a person in need every seven seconds. Since 2005, Soles4Souls has distributed more than 13 million pairs of shoes.
To assist with the drive, students made posters that were hung around the school to promote the drive and developed presentations they gave to other classes to encourage donations.
