FALLBROOK – Boys & Girls Clubs of North County is pleased to announce that they were selected as an official partner of “Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids,” an annual giving program from Payless Shoe Source. One hundred and fifty members from among the six Boys & Girls Clubs of North County sites participated in the event.
The members were divided into groups of 25 and went with club staff and volunteers to the local Payless Shoe Source in Fallbrook from Jan. 27 to Feb. 5. The children, ranging in age from 5 to 18, enjoyed shopping for and selecting their very own pair of new shoes.
Payless Shoe Source staff was on hand to measure the children’s feet and to help with their selection. Karen Kenner, site supervisor for the Live Oak Extension of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County, said “This is one of my favorite events of the year. It is so exciting for the kids to get to pick out their own pair of new shoes. It gives them such a sense of competence. We are so appreciative to Payless for their generosity.”
