The Needham High School Red Cross Club: If You Could March A Mile In My Shoes

High School students in the Red Cross Club earned CSL credit for their participation this entire year planning and for interviewing homeless US veterans currently sheltered at the New England Center for Homeless Veterans in Boston, MA.  NHS Red Cross Members took these interviews and transformed the words and stories into art projects; using shoes and boots as canvasses. The show was called "If You Could March A Mile In My Shoes" and has been exhibited at the American Red Cross Headquarters in Cambridge, MA.  The art opening was May 18, 2015.  Both the students and veterans attended. The veterans were deeply moved by these art pieces representing their lives.
