Elwood-John H. Glenn High School’s World Language Honor Society donated more than 200 pairs of shoes to those in need in March. Partnering with Soles4Souls, which distributes shoes to people in need across the U. S. and around the world, students and staff collected gently used shoes, sparking an interest in community service amongst students. According to World Language Honor Society advisor Nicole Correia, students relished the opportunity to give back to those less fortunate, having stated that it has been difficult to volunteer and obtain service hours during the pandemic.
The honor society plans to continue to partner with Soles4Souls annually to benefit those in need.
