Utah District and Foundation Team Up to Boot Out Bullying

The Salt Lake City School District is teaming up with the SafeToTalk Foundation to set up an anonymous tip line at schools and you can help out.

Community members can bring unwanted or unused shoes to one of the Salt Lake City schools or Mountain America Credit Unions. The shoes are thrown into a box, symbolizing "booting out bullying," and then recycled and are donated to the SafeToTalk Foundation.
