Students at Northwest Christian University are taking a break from finals this week, to help people living in Africa.
They held a shoe cutting party Sunday night for Sole Hope. It’s an organization that helps people in Uganda who are struggling with poverty. It also works to prevent foot-related diseases.
At the event, people cut patterns in old, donated jeans and then sent them off to Sole Hope.
The organization then sends them to Africa, where soles are attached to them before they’re given to people at medical clinics.
Gaby Herron, a junior at Northwest Christian University, organized the event. She said it was a great way to end the term and this season, by giving back to the world.
