JOPLIN EAGLE PRIDE MARCHING BAND
Collecting Shoes to raise funds for Spring Break Trip
Joplin, MO: The Joplin Eagle Pride Marching Band students are collecting shoes to raise funds for their Spring Break trip to Florida where the band will perform on Main Street of Magic Kingdom. Donations of shoes will be accepted at the Band Booster booth inside the south gate of Junge Stadium at the Joplin High School football game on October 18th. At this game, all three Joplin Middle School bands will join the Joplin Eagle Pride Marching Pride Band on the field for the annual Mass Band performance.
The High School Band will deliver the collected shoes to the Salvation Army. In return, the Salvation Army will make a donation to the band toward their trip fundraising goals. Shoes that can be used will be given to Salvation Army clients or used in their store. The rest will be recycled and saved from the landfill. All shoes are accepted—new, gently worn, awfully abused, missing a mate. Any shoes are appreciated.
Supporting the project, the three Joplin Middle School Bands are collecting shoes for a week. This spirited competition will culminate with the awarding of “The Golden Shoes” at the half-time performance of the mass band event.
After the mass band event, shoes can be dropped off on the east side of Memorial Hall for continued support of the project.
