Third Grade Shoeshine Stand Shines

McDonogh’s third graders dusted, polished, and buffed hundreds of shoes at their shoeshine stand, which was open for business on Thursday and Friday, September 15 and 16 in the Kelly Center. The annual project, inspired by the book “The Shoeshine Girl” by Clyde Robert Bulla and coordinated by third grade teacher Margaret Bitz, began in 2009. 

Customers lined up waiting for their turn and when their shoes were clean and shiny, tipped the hard working students. The funds will be used to buy fleece fabric for blankets, which the students will make and donate to The Red Devils, an organization that supports breast cancer patients.
