Give ’em your shoes!

The Association of Quark Students (AQS) is collecting new and gently used footwear to be sent to Haiti as part of their disaster-relief efforts. Blue barrels have been placed in a variety of locations if you would like to contribute to this cause. The barrels are located in:

  • Hanner Hall, east entrance
  • Health Sciences, south entrance
  • Student Union outside of SUB 161
  • Bore Hall in main lobby

The AQS hopes to collect at least 100 pairs of shoes and/or sandals. Keep in mind this is Haiti, so you’re old insulated mountain boots probably won’t be of much use. Wearing shoes is a basic method of preventing the spread of communicable disease in an earthquake-ravaged country, so please take the time to poke through your closet and donate what you can.

    There is a woman called “Crazy Auntie” if I remember right who coordinates one of the largest drives for slippers in the world which are distributed everywhere. She’s in Hawaii and found that those living in warm areas do better with slippers of all shapes and sizes than with “shoes” as we main land people think of them. I was trying to find information on their slipper drive but can’t. I’ll contact some of those I know are involved in Hawaii and get some inforamtion if you would like as it might be helpful in this wonderful donation effort.
