Harvest of shoes


SHELDON (KWWL) -- A western Iowa Co-Op is touting a bountiful harvest this week -- of shoes.

The wagons rolled into Village Northwest Unlimited in Sheldon Wednesday afternoon filled with shoes gathered through Farmer's Co-Op Society's shoe harvest.

Their goal was to fill one grain wagon, but they ended up filling four -- collecting 13,612 pairs of shoes.

These shoes will be combined with shoes from all over the US, collected through the Soles 4 Souls campaign.

They'll be going to Haiti and 125 other countries around the world.
