Are you doing spring cleaning and going through your closets getting rid of things that don?t fit or are worn out? Don?t throw them away! The Soroptimist International of the American River members are collecting shoes and bras. We combine the shoes with those we collect from Tough Mudder in the fall. We use the proceeds from the recycling to fund scholarships for women and girls in our area. For women who are struggling to get an education while supporting a family, this scholarship is a big help and recognition of their worth. The bras are sent to an agency that helps women escaping the sex trafficking trade in Mozambique. Bras are refurbished and sold to sustain the safe house as well as train women in a skill and provide self-worth. You can contact Pat at to pick up your items or drop them off at USBank in the BelAir Shopping Center on Highway 49 in Auburn.Thanks for helping us help others. Plus, it?ll get your drawers and closets clean! Pat Ferguson, Meadow Vista
