The Wolf Den of local Cub Scout Pack 23 has organized a community service project at S.M. Rissler Elementary School to collect gym shoes for donation to Bright Futures Trenton.
All scouts of Pack 23 will be participating in the drive, which includes a “Gym Shoe Dash” on the last day of school where cub scouts will visit the classrooms of their respective grades to collect gym shoes from their fellow students. The shoes will then be piled in the common area so the kids can see the results of their efforts.
Permission slips went home with students this week, so parents can designate if they would like their child to donate their gym shoes or not. Monetary donations will also be accepted and should be directed to Bright Futures Trenton, Rissler School, 801 West 4th Terrace in Trenton.
