Repurpose. Reuse. Recycle. A fundraiser for the Lester Prairie schools with supplementary donations from
Marsden and GreenSneakers. GreenSneakers represents the reuse portion of today’s popular ‘green’ trend. The
shoes LP collects are made available for reuse as affordable footwear in some of the neediest countries around
the world. Potential destinations can include central African nations, South American regions and Haiti. Shoes
are also given to capable agencies handling large scale disaster and humanitarian relief efforts. There are two
containers for shoes, one by the main office and the other by Mrs. Vertetis’s room. Shoes will then be
processed at a facility and pay us 50¢ per pound! A pair of sneakers can weigh up 2 pounds, which means
earnings of about a $1 per pair. Only SNEAKERS ARE ALLOWED, no dress shoes or boots. Please tie the
shoes together before putting them in the container. This fundraiser will run through May 30.
The weight room will be open after school on Monday and Wednesday from 3:15 to 4:30.
