Twelve Bridges Middle School held a “Toms’ Shoe” event Friday to raise awareness for children around the world who need shoes.
About 20 middle-school students and their families gathered in the school’s multipurpose room to decorate Toms’ shoes and T-shirts for the cause.
For every pair of shoes purchased by students, one pair was donated to children in need, according to Traci Jensen, an eighth-grade history teacher and the event’s director.
“We wanted to make the kids at our school aware that there are kids all over the world who aren’t as fortunate as we are,” Jensen said.
