  • A pair of third-graders at Bunker Hill Elementary School are asking the Middletown-Odessa-Townsend community to donate their gently used socks and shoes for distribution to people in need.
    Items collected through the drive, which runs until May 5, will be distributed to Soles4Souls, an 8-year-old, Nashville-based nonprofit that uses donated clothing items to help provide jobs in poverty stricken areas in 129 countries, including the United States.
    The donation drive was organized by students Matthew Bitler and Lexie Tolmie in response to a challenge from their teacher, Kerry Roesch, to develop a project that would help the world.
    Community members can drop off their new and used socks and shoes in a designated box in the bus lobby at Bunker Hill Elementary located at 1070 Bunker Hill Road in Middletown.
