High School Curriculum Nights
Mauldin High School Curriculum Night for Rising 9th Graders-February 13th from 7-8 pm @MHS
Used Shoe Drive
The HMS Wildcats for a Cause Club and Club International are sponsoring a used shoe drive during the month of January to help a local group called Shoes4Water provide clean drinking water for needy people in remote villages of Kenya in Africa.
You may be surprised to know that millions of children do not have clean drinking water. More than half of the 40 million people in Kenya lack access to safe drinking water. Each day, women and children spend 200 million hours walking long distances to collect water for their families. In addition to basic needs of water for life, clean water helps prevent many diseases as well.
You can help Shoes4Water bring inexpensive shoes to the shoeless and water to the thirsty by donating your used shoes. Shoes are collected and traded to provide shoes at a very cheap price to Kenyan villagers and the money for those shoes is used to help drill wells and build water towers for Kenyan villages, orphanages, and schools.
All you need to do is to put your used shoes in a bag, tie the laces together, or put a rubber band around them by pairs. Bring them to school and put them into the large blue barrels at each of the school entrances. Be sure the shoes are wearable and have no holes in them please.
Thank you so much for helping Shoes4Water provide shoes and water for our friends in Kenya!
