DECLO, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Declo High sneakers/201801/3029969.html">School is collecting sneakers and uniforms to send to needy kids in Africa.

 Fox said he'll continue to accept until Wednesday. If you'd like to donate gently used sneakers

Physical Education Teacher Jacoby Fox said he was cleaning up space and kept running into old uniforms, not knowing what to do with so many.

"I didn't want to throw them away, so I started searching ways to repurpose and then came across Hoops 4 Hope," Fox said.

Hoops 4 Hope is a nonprofit organization that relies on donations, Fox said, providing uniforms, sneaker and others for the less fortunate.

"The children in Africa often times don't have shoes, that's why the sneaker drive went about. It started as uniforms and moved onto sneakers," he said.

While this specific donation is for sneakers, Fox said he'll still donate the uniforms.

"We're helping, we're assisting in some way and giving back to those who are less fortunate," Fox said. "We're lucky to be in the area we're in and blessed to be in this community. To give back is a near thing and a good feeling."

Although the donation box said they'll accept until Friday, Fox said he'll continue to accept until Wednesday.

If you'd like to donate gently used sneakers, contact Declo High School at 208-654-2030.
