If you have gently used or new shoes, clean the closet, earn money for WISD kids, and send shoes to folks who need them! Take your clean shoes to Angela Miles! Drop them off at the hardware store in Woodson, or at the FSB in Throckmorton. This is our BOOSTER CLUB FUNDRAISER. When 2,500 pairs of shoes have amassed, Woodson will earn $1,000. What great opportunities! We are close to 400 pairs on our “Shoe Meter.”
