Forty-Eight 1st and 2nd grade children gathered at Skechers in Gardena to receive school shoes and supplies.  The children were from The Boys and Girls Club of Harbor City and the Volunteers of America.  The Kiwanis of Rolling Hills Estates has teamed with Skechers for the last three years in support of the underserved children in our community.

Key Club members from Peninsula and Palos Verdes High School supported the program by helping the children select their shoes.  After selecting their shoes and a backpack, with the school supplies, the children gathered in the patio for snacks and dancing.

On a somber note a memorial plaque was presented to Karen, Fred Held’s wife, to recognize Fred’s support of the club and Project Shoe.  Fred recently passed away.
