De Hoop has joined hands with a local charity in an initiative to collect school shoes, tackies and/or casual shoes that have been previously worn, but are still in a good condition.
“Walk with a Purpose” assists children who are living in poverty to gain new dignity, courage and hope.
The used shoes that you donate to “Walk with a Purpose”, will be distributed to people in your own community.
During the weeks of 26 to 29 September and 9 to 13 October 2017, pupils (and parents) can drop shoes in marked wheelie bins at school. (See attached photo.)
Please make sure that pairs of shoes are tied together with shoes laces or a cable tie.
