We are partnering up with a local family from Bluewater Elementary, the Gillman's, and through them The Global Orphan Project. We will be collecting shoes and socks for the Leogane Orphanage in Haiti. This was the place of the big 2010 Haiti Earthquake. As a result of that earthquake the orphan population doubled.

What the boys need to do: Bring in new and gently used shoes and new socks. Ask their friends, family and neighbors to donate also. Ask their friends at school to bring in shoes for their project. This is THE BOYS service project and they need to have an ownership to it.

All shoes and socks need to be collected by the December Pack Meeting (Dec 15th). The Den that collects the most shoes will get a pizza party

Here is what the Gillman's are doing. We are just donating shoes and they are going to deliver them to the orphanage for us in January at NO COST TO US!!
