Senior Project: Style-Your-Sole

Help out a Camas High School senior project and give a pair of shoes to someone in need! CHS student Amanda Rutter’s senior project is to learn and help companies that give back to their communities. Her focus is TOMS shoes. If you aren’t familiar with TOMS, their company purpose is to provide shoes to men, women, and children who have to go without. For every pair of shoes that is purchased a pair is given to people around the world.

Amanda is hosting an event called Style-Your-Sole on May 7 at Crown Park from 1-4 p.m. People from around the community (like you!) can pre-order TOMS from Amanda by contacting her by April 20. At the event, the shoe orders will be available for pick up and there will be fabric paint, stencils, markers, etc. for everyone who would like to decorate their new TOMS!

There will also be a viewing of the award-winning documentary, For Tomorrow: The TOMS Shoes Story, so their story is shared and that everyone gets to learn about their great cause! Order any kind you like but in order to decorate your TOMS it is suggested that you buy their basic canvas shoe but the color is up to you!

If you would like to place your order for TOMS, the deadline to do so is fast approaching! All orders must be in by Wednesday, April 20. In order to place an order, Amanda will need the quantity of shoes you’re going to purchase, shoe size(s), shoe style name(s), and a cash or check for the amount of the shoe(s) order plus $5 for each pair for shipping (ALL PRICES AND STYLES ARE ON THE TOMS’ WEBSITE!). If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact Amanda at anytime at!
