Starting in March, the athletic trainer at Ludington High School is spearheading a shoe drive, focusing on athletic shoes of all sizes and styles.
Cleats, basketball shoes, running shoes or trainers.
The drive aims to collect as many shoes as possible during National Athletic Training Month and then turn them over to the local teen resource center where families in need can pick them up for their young athletes.
Apparently athletic shoes are in high demand for kids.
“They are going to be distributed through our Teen Resource Center, run by Mark Boone,” says Ludington High School athletic trainer Jennifer Mroz, “He told me that athletic shoes are a big draw. As soon as he gets shoes in, they are out the door. He thinks this will be a great benefit to the community so I hope to have a good turnout.”
All shoes can be donated in the athletic office or main office at Ludington High School or can be brought to home athletic events.
