I was just going through several old shoes and realized I never wore them much. Add all the events, families growing so quick and there are so great ways to donate. Check out these.

This was in my box at the 103.5 Kissfm studios and it caught my attention quick. I caught the corner of a paragraph that explained why kids need a hand in getting ahead by donating things you might never use. I started thinking of a bag in my garage that is just waiting for a place to give away. I'm never a big fan of selling them even though that's the most responsible thing. You add up all that money and it would be nice to get some back. That said, by the time I figure out where to sell them, I could have helped out several kids.

Most places will give you a receipt so you can write a certain amount off at the end of the year. Let's just say you want help some kids out - here's what I found.

Project Best Foot Forward

Looking to help some of the thousands of kids they transport each day in need of socks and shoes. They are looking for some gently used:

  • Shoes
  • Socks
  • Underwear

I thought this was a great quote from their press release

The most basic articles of clothing, yet the most overlooked.

It's the smallest things that we might take for granted that could put a confident smile on some child's face. We all owe it to these kids to do what we can. All they did was get born. They can't control who buys their shoes and underwear. Please find it in your schedule as a family to Summer clean as kids roll back to school. You can donate at the following places:

First Student @ 465 West Gowen Road in Boise between the hours of 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. during the entire month of August. FS will also have a bus parked at Albertson on 17th and State, Gowen and Federal Way, John Schiebout's Black Belt Academy on Federal way for (August 5th and 12th).
