Details for “Warm the Soul” Sneaker Donations for CISD-SISD Charity Basketball Game
Posted on 03/25/2016
As you may know, Dr. Galaviz and the CISD Administration will play a friendly yet heated basketball game against Dr. Jose Espinoza and the SISD Administration on Thursday, April 7 at 5:00 p.m. at Eastlake High School located at 3000 Emerald Pass Ave., El Paso, TX 79928. As in the past, the game will be competitive and fun, but the event is designed to collect shoes for needy students. Last year, SISD supported CISD with our “Shots for Shoes” basketball game in April and the “Go Gridiron” flag football game in November. This time, Team CISD returns to Socorro, and we have promised to deliver a load of shoes to benefit their students.
Dr. Galaviz is asking that all CISD campuses and administrative offices get involved by donating a total of 130 pair of shoes, or 10 pair per campus and the Central Office, Facilities and Transportation and Student Support Services. The only exception is that Canutillo High School’s goal is 15 pair and Northwest ECHS’ goal is 5 pair due to the difference in the number of campus administrators. Socorro has not provided a list of specific shoe sizes, so please feel free to collect sneakers for school-age, male/female students in any size. Please deliver your donations to the Public Information Office in the Central Office on Artcraft by 12 noon on Wednesday, April 6 so that we can prep them for transport to Eastlake High School the next day.
Please note that the Nike Store in the Outlets has extended a special promotion of an additional 20% off select shoe styles beginning Thursday, March 31 through Sunday, April 3. Please present your Canutillo ISD employee ID badge to the sales associate to receive the additional 20% discount.
On a final note, everyone is cordially invited to cheer on Team CISD on April 7 at 5:00 p.m. at Eastlake High School!
Go Canutillo!
