A simple pair of children’s shoes may not look powerful, but they can make a big difference in the lives of vulnerable children and orphans around the world. The Tarkio Rotary Club is teaming up with Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls to ask Tarkio and Westboro residents to collect new shoes for children in need. Cash donations are also accepted and will help provide new shoes as well as cover distribution costs.
Drop boxes to receive shoes are located at the First Baptist and Assembly of God Churches or can be given to any Rotary Club member. Also, students in grades 7-12 at Tarkio High School are asked to bring one or more pairs of shoes to the principal’s office by Friday, April 21. Cash donations can also be given by placing in an envelope with the student’s name and grade on the outside. The class that brings the most shoes per capita will be rewarded with a pizza party during their lunch time sponsored by the Tarkio Rotary Club.
