The Zodiacs Track and Field Organization Launches Sneaker Drive
The Bronx based track team is giving back to the community.
KidZNewswire/ -- As part of their pledge to make the team well rounded, The Zodiacs have launched a sneaker drive. The sneakers should be gently used and clean. The idea was the brain child of Zodiacs parent Shevinna Ling. Ling saw a need in the community and went into action.
"In a track team our youth go through sneakers so quickly. We've decided to recycle them to keep The Bronx running," said Ling.
The team is always open to ideas to make the kids socially aware and have them participate in charity work. "We are serious about our kids being role models for their peers," said Coach Thomas Francis.
The drive will be a month long event beginning on February 11th, 2016. Those wishing to donate sneakers can do so Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Community center in Co-op City. 177 Dreiser Loop, 2nd Floor, Bronx, NY 10475
At the end of the drive the sneakers will then be donated to the Hall Place Family Shelter.
