It’s summer! The LACES Ladies are busy SHOE BUYING and SHOE GATHERING from SUMMER SHOE PARTIES – all in preparation for distributing a number of NEW shoes to every public and many private schools in Collier and Lee Counties for the beginning of school in August.

Dear Laces of Love,
My name is Kris and im a Manatee Elementary Student. I want to say “thank you.”
At school my shoes broke at the middle of class. I went to the office and got new shoes. I had to choose between 2 pairs of shoes and I picked Laces of Love because they looked amazing. I picked Laces of Love. I hope you donate more shoes to my school so if more children have broken shoes they can pick Laces of Love.
Thank you again for helping children.
Kris… Read the rest
