Five local Rotary Clubs banded together last month to gather shoe donations for Clothes for Kids.
After a month-long shoe drive from Jan. 26 through Feb. 24, a total of 560 pairs of shoes were collected and donated to Clothes for Kids. In addition, a check for $1,125 was delivered — $500 of that check was from Lynnwood’s First Security bank, and the remaining $625 was from Rotary Club of Lynnwood.
The Lynnwood, Alderwood Terrace, Edmonds Noon, Edmonds Daybreakers and Mill Creek Rotary Clubs all participated in the shoe drive.
Clothes for Kids is a non-profit organization that provides clothing for kids in need at several local school districts, including the Edmonds School District. For more information about Clothes for Kids, click here.
