Quiet Corner PeaceJam Soles4Souls Shoe Drive Project

March 15 @ 8:00 am July 1 @ 5:00 pm

Quiet Corner PeaceJam is a group of dedicated students in grades 5th – 8th. The goal of PeaceJam is to inspire a new generation of leaders who will transform themselves, their local communities, and the world through act’s of service, compassion, and one billion acts of kindness.

What is Soles4Souls? The mission of Soles4Souls is to turn unwanted shoes and clothing into opportunities, by keeping them from going to waste and putting them to good use – providing relief, creating jobs and empowering people to break the cycle of poverty. The goal of our shoe drive is to collect 2,500 pairs of new or gently used shoes from March 15th to July 1st. We have collaborated with several community partners for this drive and donations
