Hingham High wins sneaker drive

Hingham High School has collected almost 700 shoes in this year’s Sneaker Drive contest against Silver Lake High School. Hingham and Silver Lake competed for four weeks, working to collect old sneakers and shoes for both recycling and for donation to charity. Together, the schools collected over a thousand pairs. “It was great to see our student body — as well as the broader Hingham community — rally around the shoe drive again this year,” said Hingham High Assistant Principal Rick Swanson.  “The project accomplished something worthwhile, not only by getting shoes to people in need and rescuing worn-out pairs from the landfills, but also by underscoring an important message to our students: Together we can really make a difference,’’ he said. Shoes in good condition were donated to the American Red Cross, while more-damaged shoes were given to Nike’s program that turns them into tracks, basketball courts, and other athletic surfaces.
