Shoe collection will benefit Twin Tiers Honor Flights

Got shoes? Donate them at Maine Memorial and help support the Twin Tiers Honor Flights. Donate now through May in the school's main lobby. The collection is sponsored by the school's Student Council.
 
Collected shoes are sold to a company to help people (who live in developing countries) start a business to help their families.  This also keeps shoes that can still be used out of the landfill (600 million pairs of shoes go into USA landfills every year!).
 
The money raised then goes to pay for the Twin Tier Honor Flight which helps Veterans (who served our country) take a free trip to Washington DC to see the National Memorials and Monuments.
