Each year, Olathe (Kan.) North High School students raise money for the Pennies for Shoes Campaign. This effort supports the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Fund to purchase footwear for Olathe students in need as well as ensure that each local family has food, clothing and water during the holidays. SkillsUSA members held various fundraisers, including an auction with donated items, a pie sale and a car smashing contest. Their latest campaign was a success, collecting over $1,000 more than the previous year’s.
