Clean Out Those Closets, Help John Muir’s 6th Graders Raise Money For Camp!

Thirty-two 6th graders at John Muir School would really like to go to camp, but they need some extra help from the community to get there.  As you may know, 6th grade camp has been eliminated due to budget cuts.  Now, many students across the city are unable to have the fun experience of camping.

John Muir School sixth graders have decided to raise money themselves so they can experience two nights of camping and team-building exercises in nature.  In keeping with John Muir School’s magnet theme of Global Citizenship, they are hosting a Shoe Recycling fundraiser.  They will collect shoes from fellow students and the community to be recycled or sent to families in developing nations.

You are invited to stop by the parking lot of John Muir School (4431 Mt. Herbert Avenue; next to Mt. Etna Park) on Saturday, January 25, 2014 from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. You may drop off children’s, men’s, or women’s, shoes in any condition.  Shoes should be tied, rubber-banded, or shoe-laced together.  Our student volunteers will bag them up for you!  Used clothing, blankets, and sheets will also be accepted.

John Muir School’s 6th graders thank you for helping them earn their way to camp this year!
