*****Hastings Parent Group SHOE-DRIVE

The HPG is currently running a Shoe Drive and we need your help! We are collecting gently worn, used, and new shoes.  Any type, style, or size, as long as they are not damp/wet or falling apart.  All shoes will help us earn money for Hastings’ students, and help individuals in developing nations like Ghana, Haiti and Bolivia.

There is a collection bin in Hastings’ Lobby, and a few around town, but we need your help to spread the word!  Please ask neighbors, friends, and co-workers if they have shoes to donate!  If you have a large number to donate and need drop-off help, or if you have a great location for a bin please contact us at HastingsShoeDrive@gmail.com   Thank you!!
