Hundreds of shoes collected for Manchester schools

Generous members of the Manchester community donated nearly 250 pairs of shoes to the Currier Museum of Art's Shoes for Schools drive. The museum organized the charitable effort in advance of its upcoming exhibition, Killer Heels: The Art of the High-Heeled Shoe, and Manchester School District is grateful to be the recipient. 
The Webster Elementary School student council sorted, counted and boxed the new shoes, sneakers and boots, which are now being distributed to elementary- and middle school-age children across Manchester. 

We are storing the collection at the school district office and have invited principals and assistant principals to "shop" for shoes they can bring back to school and give to their students who need them.

Our sincere thanks to all who donated, and to the Currier for the partnership!
