Kiwanis Key Club at Summit High School Assembles 40 Shoes for Sole Hope Project

The Key Club at Summit High School bought a “shoe kit” from Sole Hope, gathered old jeans and empty milk bottles and turned them into shoes on Tuesday night.

Fourteen Key Club members showed up to gather to eat tacos and work for a good cause. Sole Hope uses volunteers to purchase shoe making kits and then the pieces are cut from the denim and plastic and bundled to be sent to Africa and assembled by local Africans who are paid a fair wage. The Key Club is branch of the Kiwanis Club of Spring Hill/Thompson’s Station.ξ Summit’s Key Club sponsor is teacher Kate Hickey.
