$840.00 raised to buy new gym shoes!!!!
Thanks to all our Raffle Prize Sponsors and thanks to all that participated by
buying a raffle ticket(s). $840.00 was raised for the purchase of new gym shoes
for kids at Juniper, LaPine and Jewell Elementaries. We were able to purchase
84 new pairs of shoes, 48 pairs of socks and 6 pairs of extra shoelaces. A
donation of 7 pairs of gym shoes by Laura and Andy Schob brought the total
number to 91 pairs of shoes.
The shoes were delivered to Teacher Kaleo Renstrom atJuniper Elementary on
and Jewell Elementaries.
A special thank you to Laura Schob, our shoe shopping diva. She has an eye
for a bargain and an organized method for buying over 80 pairs of shoes at
once! Thank you also to Payless Shoes and their awesome employees Melanie
McCauley and Amethyst Miller, who donated an additional 20% discount AND
kept our orders organized.
The success of this raffle allowed us to really expand the program. Moving
forward, we hope to include as many Deschutes County Elementary Schools
as express interest. I will be attending a meeting of the County PE teachers in
March to discuss future goals and plans. Please contact me if you would like to be
involved future efforts.
. Kaleo will organize the distribution of the shoes going to LaPine
