SYCAMORE – The confirmation students at Salem Lutheran Church, 1145 DeKalb Ave. in Sycamore, are hosting a shoe drive through April 17. New or gently-worn shoes of any type and size will be accepted.

There are collection boxes inside the church where shoes can be dropped off.

The students’ goal is to collect at least 2,300 pairs of shoes to donate to Share Your Soles, a nonprofit organization that sends shoes to impoverished communities worldwide. At the end of the drive, the students will deliver their donations to the Share Your Soles warehouse in Alsip and will spend the day volunteering there.

For more information, call 815-895-8416 or 815-970-1318.
