Mann School Girl Scout Troop 2787 collected 425 pairs of shoes from generous community members for the non-profit organization Soles 4 Souls. The organization helps those in need throughout the U.S. and more than 40 countries around the world. Thanks to all those whose contributions will warm 850 feet (and 425 hearts)! Special thanks to the Imbert Corporation/Chicago Cooling Tower for covering shipping costs.

Inspired by the children’s book Four Feet, Two Sandals, set in a refugee camp, the Girl Scouts and their families also supported the Afghan Doll Dress Project by purchasing salwar kameez outfits made for dolls. The sale of every 10 doll costumes helps an Afghani family with their finances for one month.
