The Boys & Girls Clubs of Long Beach has been selected by Payless ShoesSource to be a part of the company’s “Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids Holiday Giving Program.”
Coupons for free shoes will be distributed to selected members of the Club (based on financial need). 100 children will get to redeem their coupons at the Payless Shoes Store # 521 at a private shopping event.
The local club is among 700 charitable agencies representing all 50 states in the United States, as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and 11 Latin American countries.
By helping families who struggle to provide their children with basic essentials on a daily basis, the Club, in partnering with the Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program, hopes to relieve some of the stress parents feel during the holidays and bring joy to as many children as possible.
The Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids Holiday Giving event is Saturday, December 17, 2011 from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. at Payless Shoes Store 455 W. Willow Street, Long Beach, CA 90806
Through their signature grassroots giving program, Payless Gives™ Shoes 4 Kids, Payless provides $1.2 million in new shoes to children in need through their nonprofit partners.
Each year they invite nonprofit organizations who serve children in need to apply to receive coupons for new, free shoes at Payless.
