On August 2nd, 2012, The Shoe Crew met its summer goal of 2200 pairs of shoes. Since then, we have continued to collect more shoes and are now at an official shoe count of 2,656 pairs of shoes. Over 1000 pairs were distributed to A Place Called Home at their annual Back To School Event on August 4th and an additional 859 pairs were delivered to the Shoes That Fit warehouse. Over 700 pairs are awaiting distribution to disadvantaged kids in the Santa Clarita area.
A special thanks to Vlado Footwear and all of our other sponsors for helping us meet our goal. The Shoe Crew is planning to continue to serve the community by providing new shoes to kids who need them on an ongoing basis.
