Mario Johnson, Program Coordinator for Poughkeepsie’s Nubian Directions II YouthBuild/AmeriCorps, describes how dedicated young adults collected nearly 2,000 new and slightly used shoes, sneakers, and boots in one month for victims of Hurricane Sandy, with shipments going to Long Island and New Jersey. Organized in partnership with LaGrange Sunrise Rotary and the Freedom Plains Presbyterian Church of Lagrangeville, the project was affiliated with the charitable organization called Soles4Souls and was a successful response to National Make a Difference Day. Participants of Nubian Directions II, ages 16-24, are also members of Rotaract. Mr. Johnson shares many heartwarming stories of success, including his own. Learn More:
