Old shoes could change a life

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

Life doesn’t get much better than when adults help a student put a plan into action. The Los Alamos Kiwanis club has done just that.
Los Alamos High School student Anna Carroll stepped up to the plate without her shoes last week, as she launched a community-wide shoe
drive to help change the world.
Carroll, along with fellow LAHS Key Club students, has partnered with Think Kindness and Soles4Souls, to conduct shoe drives throughout the school district and in the community.
The Key Club is part of Key Club International, the oldest and largest student-led community service organization for high school students. The local group has partnered with Soles4Souls and Think Kindness, which distributes new and used shoes to those in need all around the world.
Carroll was first introduced to the idea this summer when she attended the Key Club International Convention in Memphis, Tenn.
Students were able to attend educational workshops to gain new ideas and leadership skills for youth to bring home to their own clubs and organizations.
Carroll’s choice was entitled, “Change the World in 15 Days,” and with the help of the community, she will do just that.
