On Saturday September 8th the Kiwanis Club of Rolling Hills Estates held their annual Project Shoe Program at the local Payless Shoe Store in Torrance.
Seventy Five children ages 2 through 6 years, from the local Harbor City Boys and Girls Club, Volunteers of America, and children from military families, received a pair of shoes and a backpack containing school supplies.
Supporting the Kiwanis were high school students from the two local high school service clubs, Peninsula and Palos Verdes High Key Clubs and KIWINS.
The children were provided snacks and entertained with music and dancing. The program is unique as the children are asked to perform a task at home in return for receiving the shoes and backpack so that they understand that this is not just another free give away program.
