Bright Futures holding shoe drive

August 30, 2013 

Bright Futures Harrisonville, in partnership with the Harisonville Schools Activities Office, will host a Shoe Drive at the Wildcat football team’s home opener Sept. 6.

Bright Futures is in need of new or very gently used shoes in all sizes for both males and females. The most needed sizes are adult sizes, but all will be accepted. The shoes will be given to Harrisonville students in need throughout the school year.

“Shoes are our biggest need throughout the year,” Bright Futures Co-Coordinator Jennifer Beavers said. “With our new Cats Basement area, we now have a place to store shoes. This drive will help us build up our inventory so that we will be able to meet our students’ needs more efficiently.”

Any person who brings a pair of new or very gently used shoes to donate will be admitted to the game free. All donors should enter at the main gate as that will be the location of the collection barrels.

Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the Wildcats will host Savannah in a 7 p.m. kick-off.

Bright Futures Harrisonville is a community-wide initiative developed to ensure all students have the opportunity to be successful. The initiative brings together several areas of the community – business, parents, faith-based, social/human services, and the schools – with the hope that our children’s needs can be met with resources from within the community. Bright Futures focuses, not only physical needs, but emotional and social needs as well, and seeks resources that include “time, talent and treasure.”
