Track teams to conduct shoe drive

The Hanover College athletic department will continue its campus-wide shoe drive Saturday, March 30, at L.S. Ayres Field.

Spearheaded by Hanover’s track & field program, the department is teaming with Indianapolis, Ind.-based organization Changing Footprints to collect new and used shoes during the the 10-team Hanover Invitational. A collection box will be located at the main entrance.

Spectators are encouraged to donate shoes in any condition. Collected shoes will be distributed to disaster-stricken, homeless and under-privileged people locally, nationally and internationally. Shoes unsuitable to wear will be recycled for playground materials.

Hanover’s track & field teams will continue to coordinate the shoe drive throughout the remainder of the academic year.
