This is what 1,000 pairs of shoes look like! One PC student brought together his grandmother's example of service, and a need for supplies in an impoverished region, and went into action this summer.
When Kyle Glauner's grandmother passed away recently, he wanted to do something to honor her memory. Since she was a supporter of St. Jude's Research Hospital, Kyle collected shoes to raise money to donate to St. Jude’s in her memory. As an added benefit, the shoes donated were shipped to Guatemala for those in need. Kyle collected 1000 pairs of shoes; after delivery fees (of $350), he raised $388.80. Kyle had support from many friends and families, local Catholic churches and area businesses. Kyle thanks everyone who helped in supporting his grandmother's loving efforts.
