A project that is 3 semesters in the making in drawing to a close in Forest City.

Waldorf College organizers say that more than 2500 pairs of shoes have been collected on campus and in the community over the last several months.

Soles4Souls Project Coordinator Brett Geelan says the shoes will be sent off to Sheldon, Iowa soon for cleaning and sorting prior to shipment overseas.

The shoes are destined for countries where victims are still recovering from recent disasters.

Assisting Waldorf College in the collection were the Forest City YMCA, Bill's Family Foods, Immanuel Lutheran Church and St. James Catholic Church.
