Could you spare a pair of athletic shoes that are still in great shape and perhaps seldom used?
Or … might you contribute $5, $10, or $20 toward a new pair?
Many Waimea Middle School students who have signed up for free, after-school athletics do not have appropriate footwear. Unless new and barely worn, donors are asked to please toss the shoes into the washing machine so they are ready to be used, and then, please deliver the shoes to the school office where they will be put to good use.
If a donation is preferred, please make check payable to Waimea Middle School and add a note that it’s for athletic shoes and bring the check to the school office or mail to: Principal Matt Horne, 67-1229 Mamalahoa Highway, Kamuela, HI 96743.
WMS provides free after-school programs for all students including tutoring, ‘ukulele, leadership, robotics and athletics. After-school tutoring, thanks to federal support, includes free healthy snacks and busing. Students participating in other programs need to ride the free public shuttle bus home or be picked up by family members. For more information, call WMS Community Liaison Patti Cook at 937-2833.
