The clock is ticking!! Get your shoes in as soon as possible because the truck is coming any day now!
A shoe has so much more to offer than just a walk! Great news...the ILHS SADD Shoe Drive is extended!

Boxes are set up in each IL School for shoes that your kids have outgrown or ones that are no longer your style and help others!  In addition, we now have a box at the Hilliker YMCA in Bellefontaine and Anytime Fitness, along with Lakeview Hardware.

The Indian Lake High School SADD Club (Students Against Destructive Decisions) members are not asking you to go out and buy anything, but rather donate what you have around the house! Shoe sizes from infant through adult, sandals, cleats, boots, any type of foot covering are being accepted. The shoes should be gently used or like new with no rips, holes, or water damage, and no soles coming off. SADD earns money based on the number of pounds of footwear we collect. 

The footwear will be sent to developing countries like Haiti, Uganda, and India where micro-entrepreneurs use the shoes collected in North American fundraisers for their businesses. The collected footwear provides inventory for micro-businesses around the world, which helps create economic sustainability. This means survival for many families. 

Help out if you can by dropping off shoes during school hours or by sending them in with any ILHS SADD member. Thanks!
