The Montclair Kiwanis Club is holding an athletic shoe and sneaker drive to raise money to fund college scholarships for Montclair students.
Acceptable donations include gently worn athletic shoes with plastic or rubberized soles (no metal cleats) and sneakers with no holes or tears.
The club asks donors to tie the donated shoes together to ensure they are kept as a pair. Street and dress shoes will not be accepted. All shoe sizes are desired.
There are collections bins at every public school. Donors can ask at the main office where the bins are located.
Montclair is seeking to raise $230,000 from donors, members and grantors between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 to put us on firm footing for 2022, and continue supporting the hard work of our journalists into the new year and beyond.
