Slipper Drive nets Super Results!

| No Comments

Kellie Davideit reported that her slipper drive was a success!  "It was a very successful year; we collected approximately 250 pairs of slippers!  Donations came-in from various Brownie/Girl Scout troops in town, Mom's groups, and neighbor's."  In addition, the daughter of friends of Kellie's organized a slipper-drive at Scotch Plains/Fanwood High School.  Staff and students were moved by the story of how Kellie's collection efforts all began with a pair of "Wiggles" slippers that were lost (and found) when her son Ian was in the hospital.


The slippers were delivered to St. Peter's the Monday before Christmas where they surely helped brighten the day of some young patients.  Many adult slippers were donated too, some of which went to St. Peter's Hospital and others were given to the Social Concerns ministry at St. Francis of Assisi Cathedral, here in Metuchen, who distribute food and gifts to the needy.


Thanks to all who donated.  Your contributions helped make a tough day a little bit brighter for a lot of kids and their families.  It was a beautiful tribute to Ian's memory.  See you next year!
