Early this month, Miss Teen America, Eleana Frangedis, spoke to the young women of Guardian Angels Catholic School Girl Scout Troops 1062, 943 and 908 about bullying.

To show appreciation for Frangedis' time, troop members requested donations of new or gently used shoes from their friends, family and school community for Soles4Souls, an organization Frangedis is affiliated with.

To encourage donations, Guardian Angels Catholic School allowed the Scouts to participate in school announcements and hang posters for the dropoff center for the shoes, and designated a "dress down" day to help collect money to offset the cost of the transportation and shipping of the shoes.

By campaign's end, the girls collected 916 pairs of shoes.
