KicksForKids_ColorMy office is sponsoring a “Kicks for Kids” campaign, a back-to-school shoe drive for low-income youth, distributed through Mary’s Place. Active kids need good shoes, but it’s financially overwhelming for many families to keep up with those growing feet.

Here’s how you can help:

WHAT: A back-to-school sneaker drive for low-income youth, distributed through Mary’s Place

WHY: Last year, Windermere introduced the Kicks for Kids campaign.  As we handed out hundreds of new shoes at Mary’s Place, we were beyond overwhelmed by the true need that existed there. Many of the kids who came were wearing old shoes that were way too big or small because that was all they had available. It left a huge hole in our hearts and encouraged our Mercer Island office to bring this shoe drive back for an even stronger second year.

WHEN: Formal shoe collection will take place from July 22 – August 18, 2015

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 from now through August 18th.

WHO: Sponsored by Windermere Mercer Island in partnership with Mary’s Place of Seattle

Thank you for your support!  I’m also available to pick up shoes from you directly.  Email me at: [email protected]
