That’s the number of shoes collected at Wadena-Deer Creek’s NHS Shoe Drive benefiting families in Haiti.

WDC National Honor Society members Kendra Evans, Briana Malone, Kassi Peterson and Hannah Vorderbruggen organized the Soles4Souls charity shoe drive as their global NHS project.  The shoe drive ran for three weeks.

“We had a wonderful response from the community and the school. Thank you to everyone who donated shoes,” said Vorderbruggen.

Dawn Hamelau serves as NHS advisor.

Great job, NHS students!
