JACOB’S SHOES The Jacob S. Zweig Foundation was formed in honor of Jacob S. Zweig who was tragically killed at the
age of seventeen. Jacob had a natural gift for making everyone, regardless of ability, feel loved and part of a group. To
honor Jacob’s legacy, his family and friends want to support local organizations and continue Jacob’s way of treating
others with dignity and inclusion. Jacob’s Shoes gives children and young adults in need the opportunity to walk with
pride, and go to school or play sports with dignity. The organization provides new and gently used shoes, backpacks,
school supplies, and athletic gear to local children in need. Since 2009, the organization has provided over 135,000 pairs
of new and refurbished shoes. Children receiving the shoes live in poverty, are homeless, or live in shelters. Some live
in foster care or have “aged-out” of foster care. All are in need. Please help collect new and gently used shoes for the
community in need. Items may include shoes of all types and sizes….children through adult size…men’s, women’s
sneakers, cleats, dress shoes. Shoes may be delivered to Mrs. Cronkhite’s room 6-105 now through March 3. Bring your
Community Service Log if you would like hours for your collection time.
DECA is partnering with Youth Crisis Center of Jacksonville to support their efforts to build a healthier community. We
are accepting donations of toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, bar or hand soap, shaving cream, razors, mouthwash and
towels. One hour of community service will be given per 10 items donated. Bring donations and your community service
form to Mrs. Preston’s Room 4-106.
