Shoe Drive

Calling all BBE Families!

SHINE Club's Service Learning Committee is collecting NEW & GENTLY USED children's TENNIS shoes to donate to Mission Northeast*. This collection will help prepare Mission Northeast for their client's back to school shopping needs. There are many ways to participate:

- donate gently used shoes from your child's closet

- ask neighbors for gently used shoes

- purchase a new pair of shoes to donate

- donate a gift card to a local shoe store

Please consider providing support in one of these ways. All students will place their donated tennis shoes in the labeled bin at the front or back arrival areas. Let's go Bears!

We appreciate your support!

BBE SHINE Club, Service Learning Committee

*Mission Northeast serves clients in Kingwood and surrounding areas covering 800 square miles and 11 zip codes. They provide food, clothing and household items to families in need while also building relationships with them by getting to know them and helping them above and beyond their basic needs.
