Program gives Club kids new kicks
Soles 4 Souls, a non-profit that collects and distributes shoes for those in need, provided a shipment of shoes to the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows for just the cost of shipping.
On Dec. 22 our shipment of 102 pairs of shoes arrived and within minutes the first pair was given out to a young man wearing size 3 shoes that had the fronts of both shoes completely torn out. This young man was issued a brand new pair of size 5.5 shoes that fit him perfectly!
Since that time our staff has been switching out shoes for kids whose shoes are either too small, have holes in them or that have the bottoms of the shoes completely worn through. The kids are walking away smiling.
There is nothing like the feeling you get when you wear those new shoes for the first time! Thanks Soles 4 Souls for making this happen.
