For a number of years, the ACS Athens Athletics Council, representing all student-athletes, organizes the ACS Athens Sports Shoes Recycling project. A campaign took place over the past few weeks and our community's response has been great once again! The used sports shoes are "given a second life" by donating them to a number of less fortunate individuals to play, run, exercise, and be active! ACS Athens collaborates with the NGO “Institute Team For the World” and they distribute them to those in need.
Today, members of our Athletic Council collected the shoes from the bins and placed them in bags for them to be picked up by representatives of the organization before the Holiday break.
Many thanks to those that contributed to this great cause!
A similar drive will take place in the spring - stay tuned!
