You walk and run in them. You work and style in them. And now, you can save lives with them.
Shoes are the focus of an upcoming collection drive being organized by a local Cub Scouts pack, joining in a growing effort to convert donated footwear into fresh water systems in impoverished countries.
Cub Scouts Pack 470, which primarily features Simpsonville Elementary School students, is organizing the drive, which is scheduled for Sept. 19-30. The school is the primary drop-off location, but the movement stretches well beyond local borders.
