WHS students lead Warm Feet Drive

by Linzi VanSlyke and Erin Nagel
   Do you need to clean out your closet? Get rid of those slightly worn shoes and socks by bringing them to Woodinville High School Nov. 6 - 9. Students will be bringing those much-appreciated shoes and socks to the Union Gospel Mission of Greater Seattle to help clothe the homeless and poor.
   VanSlyke and Nagel, like all the students in Woodinville High School's leadership class, are pairing up this trimester to plan and implement a project that will better the student body and/or the entire community. Other student projects range from a tie-dyeing party, where students raised school spirit by tie-dyeing their clothes Falcon green and blue, to a penny drive, where students raised class funds while competing to listen to their favorite radio station at lunchtime. While all the projects are different, each one helps students learn to plan, set goals, and complete a project that will have a benefit to others.
   Your shoe and sock donations will be gladly accepted in Woodinville High School's main office. Just look for the box that says "Warm Feet Drive!" You will be able to drop off your items during school hours, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. If you have any questions, please feel free to call Judy Clark, ASB Activities Coordinator, at (425) 489-6754.
