There are so many ways to give back/make an impact. My niece, Laura, who was “crowned” Miss Vineland in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Vineland, New Jersey, created a way to give back by collecting 3,000 pairs of shoes from her community which were donated to the Salvation Army to help people in need.
The following was noted in Vineland’s TheDailyJournal.com on September 3, 2011:
With support from the community, Miss Vineland 2011 Laura Huffman collected more than 3,000 pairs of shoes, which were donated to the Salvation Army to help people in need. “I was so grateful for all the contributions and how the community of Vineland really came together and made a difference in the lives of the less fortunate,” she said. Above, Huffman has some fun as her father, Tim Huffman, uses a tractor to load some of the donations into a truck for transport to the Salvation Army.
