Kicks for Kids Yields 825 Pair

Date: Thursday, September 26 2019

Shoes – and their appearance or condition – can be a huge indicator of poverty in children. With the belief that the simple gift of shoes can change a child’s life, Les Schwab Tire Centers and KEZI spent recent months requesting and collecting such magical footwear.

Kicks for Kids culminated Sept. 26 at St. Vinnie’s on Chad Dr., as three pickup loads of shoes bagged in yellow, with life-changing prospects for 825 individuals.

In other words, Les Schwab and KEZI kicked it. On behalf of all the feet that will be leaping with joy, thank you!
