In 2013, the World Bank counted 767 million people living in poverty who couldn’t afford education and basic articles of clothing like shoes. To help meet people’s basic needs, the Carpinteria High School Interact Club is holding a shoe drive in partnership with Samaritan’s Feet International, a non-profit organization that “serves and inspires hope in children by providing shoes as the foundation to a spiritual and healthy life resulting in the advancement of education and economic opportunities.” Interact Club, partnering with the Rotary Club, functions to put “Service Above Self,” and is calling on the Carpinteria community to donate any spare, new or gently used shoes to help children and adults in need in the United States and beyond. The shoes may be in any size or color, however, the organization is specifically seeking children’s athletic shoes with a preference for new or gently used footwear. Shoes can be dropped off at three locations: the Carpinteria High School front office, 4810 Foothill Road; Carpinteria Boys & Girls Club, 4849 Foothill Road or Rotary Club of Carpinteria, 6197 Casitas Pass Road.
