MKS Is A Proud Drop-Off Site!

The holidays are a great time to give! Because our dancers bring shoes to class every week, years ago we chose the Shoeman Water Projects as a ministry to contribute to during the holidays. After meeting our initial goal, we decided to take shoes in all year round indefinitely!

Shoeman Water Projects’ main focus is to provide clean water in communities in developing countries. Access to clean safe water can change everything, including health, education and income. Shoeman has generated revenue to fund these water projects by collecting new and gently used shoes. Their 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.” You can make a difference with a few pair of shoes!

DIAVOLO, created by Jacques Heim, started the Veterans project three years ago as part of a community outreach project. Heim said part of his goal with the workshop was to restore physical, mental and emotional aspects of the veterans, and he does that through "intense" movements.
