If so, we'd like some! Yorktown, along with several other local schools and running teams, is collecting gently worn shoes and sneakers (no boots, flip-flops, sandals, slippers) for "Back On My Feet" in Washington, DC. The donation box is in front of the library and will be there until winter break. We're hoping that many of you will be able to donate on your way to tonight's Fall Sports Award Ceremony. The donation box is directly across from the cafeteria. Thank you for your contribution!
