Ransom Middle Holding Shoe Drive To Help Train Service Dogs For Veterans

February 9, 2019

The Ransom Middle School Library is holding a new and gently used shoe drive.

The drive is being conducted during International Random Acts of Kindness Week, going on through February 15. The shoes will benefit Healing Paws for Warriors to rescue shelter dogs and train them to become service dogs for veterans.

Healing Paws will receive $10 for every 25 pairs of donated shoes, helping the organization with the $5,000 cost to train a service dog.

All sizes of shoes are accepted. They will go to needy people in 24 developing counties.

Collection bins are located in the Ransom Middle School front office and library through February 15.
