How many shoes do you have scattered around you room? Research suggests that on average Americans have 19 pairs of shoes.

Juniors Aliyah Frederick, Kara Stutterheim, and Emily Schmidt noticed this as a problem and they’re doing something about it. From Nov. 12-20, they will be having a shoe drive.

“I noticed how many shoes I wasn’t wearing and thought I could give them to less fortunate people.” said Stutterheim.

After the shoes are collected, they will be given to a company that will send them to places likeΒ Hungary and Honduras.
