Each year the Kiwanis Club of Rolling Hills Estates hosts a children’s school shoe party. This year Project Shoe was held on September 10th at the local Payless Shoe Store in Torrance.
The children are from the local Boys and Girls Club, ranging in age from 5 and 7 years, and come from the low socioeconomic families in our community. Each child is provided with a new pair of school shoes and a backpack filled with school supplies.
This year 89 children participated in the program. After receiving their shoes and backpack the children were entertained with music and dancing. Kiwanis and high school Key club members, along with staff from the local Payless Shoe store, assisted the children in selecting the shoes.
