WHAT: A back-to-school sneaker drive for low-income youth, distributed through Mary’s Place
WHY: Kids from struggling families are in need of back-to-school shoes that fit. When kids feel good about their appearance, it improves both their self-esteem and their performance in school.
WHEN: Formal shoe collection will take place from August 1st – August 15
WHERE: Windermere Mercer Island is the collection point where you can drop off new athletic shoes or sneakers (youth sizes 1-6 and adult sizes 7-9) or $20 Payless Shoe Source gift cards.
WHO: Sponsored by Windermere Mercer Island in partnership with Mary’s Place of Seattle
Help us make sure every child has a new pair of shoes for school!
