Lamplighter children’s shoes form a large pile.

The Lamplighter School community has donated about 1,500 pairs of shoes to a nonprofit organization that collects new and used shoes for victims of misfortune and poverty.

The outreach benefits the shoe charity Soles4Souls, and continues through mid-September where students will then load up boxes of their Nikes, Stride Rites, cowboy boots and even mom’s heels into trucks headed to the Soles4Souls organization.

Children were allowed to tip-toe back to their classrooms barefoot after donating during the school’s first Hootenanny. The school is continuing to garner more support.
