Way to go, Key Club! Sponsor--Maria Morgan

Shoeman Water Projects main focus is to provide clean water in communities in

developing countries. We have generated revenue to fund these water projects by

collecting new and gently used shoes. Our shoe collection efforts improve our planet by

keeping wearable, usable shoes out of local landfills and directing them to a secondary

market for reuse both locally and globally.

Key Club raised $450 for the Shoeman Water Project With the FHS Key Club donation, Shoeman was able to help fully fund a project that provides safe water for those in Isongo, Kenya.

Hannah Babcock and Taylor Oestreich have set the date for March 25, 2017! Congrats!
