High school: Got sneakers?

Wednesday, March 15, 2017 by The Press in School

The Catasauqua High School SADD Club is holding a used athletic sneakers, shoes and cleats drive for the month of March. Many youth athletes don’t have the appropriate shoes for the sport that they play. This can sometimes affect their self-esteem and confidence and could even make them the target for being made fun of or bullied. Athletics is often a way for students to handle stress, cope, have fun and stay away from negative influences. Please donate your “Kicks For Kids” during homeroom to benefit Lehigh Valley youth.
