Shoes for Haiti

The Grade 5 class of Our Lady of Mercy Elementary in Burnaby is one of many groups of students and parishioners who have come up with novel ways to raise money for Haiti. Headed by teacher Chinh Nguyen, they held a Red Day where students wore red, collected money and held a shoe drive for victims of the earthquake. They raised more than $1,200 cash and collected a truckload of shoes for Soft Moc Store as part of the Soles for Souls organization, which sorts and ships the shoes to Haiti. Watch The B.C. Catholic for more details on this and other Haiti initiatives.
