Boots made for walking in puddles

The South Perry Sock Drive is going amazingly well. So far, South Perry Pizza has collected several bins full of hats, gloves, socks and mittens for the students at Grant Elementary School. Grant parent volunteer Heidi Hash is collecting and sorting all the generous donations at her house. School counselors will help distribute the garments as soon as possible.
With the weather changing for warmer temperatures and snow melting like crazy there's one thing the students really need: boots - rubber boots, snow boots, any kind of waterproof boot, in sizes from kindergarten and up.
Look for collection bins at South Perry Pizza, The Shop and Liberty Park Florist or e-mail the blog at piah@spokesman.com (please put "boots" in the subject line) and we'll arrange something.
The South Perry Sock Drive is sponsored by the South Perry Business and Neighborhood Association. Thanks to all who donated and collected.
