Lassen Family Services to provide free shoes through national program
Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2014 — Just in time for the holiday season, Payless ShoeSource is once again launching its annual international children’s shoe-donation program, Payless GivesTM Shoes 4 Kids, and has announced its selected charity partners include Lassen Family Services.
The program — which reaches all 50 states — will give more than $1.5 million of free shoes to children of families in need this holiday season.
A group of children served by Lassen Family Services will participate in a shoe-shopping trip at the Payless ShoeSource store here in Susanville. The children will enjoy shopping for and selecting their own pair of free new shoes. For many youth accustomed to used and hand-me-down shoes, this will be their first pair of new shoes.
