This year the Kiwanis Shoes for Kids Project marks its ninth year of collecting new sneakers for students in the Charlotte County Public School System. The focus of this project is to collect new tennis shoes, for children in need and then distribute them to all of the schools in the Charlotte County Public School System at the start of the 2013-2014 school year. This year the goal is 4500 new pairs of sneakers.
For any parent or guardian needing shoes for their child, please contact the front office staff to inquire as to the specifics of distribution at the particular school site.
