Sole Hope

Want the opportunity to get involved in a meaningful and rewarding service activity? Strickland Hall is sponsoring a service project through Sole Hope, an organization that strives to provide children in Uganda with shoes to protect their feet from harmful diseases. The shoes are created from denim jean material, and the organization recruits the help of willing volunteers to collect the jeans and cut them into shoe patterns. From March 20th through April 2nd, we will be holding a campus-wide jean drive, and we need YOUR help! As everyone begins to clean out their closets before heading home for the summer, we hope you’ll consider donating your old jeans – even one pair makes a huge impact! Drop-off locations will be in all residence hall lobbies, as well as in Lundy-Fetterman, the Campus Ministry House, and the Wallace Student Center (the Oasis).


The “Shoe Cutting Party” event, where we will get together to cut the jeans and package them for shipment to Sole Hope, will be held on Monday, April 25th at 8:00 PM in the Rumley Center. If you are interested in helping with the project, please contact Anna Marie Vagnozzi, Strickland Hall RA, at for more information.
