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.
Once the shoes are purchased, they are tagged with a “Laces of Love” tag and bagged (by size and by school) and set aside for delivery to the schools the second and third weeks of August. A BIG job…. But FUN, knowing the smiles that will be on the faces of needy kids who really need decent shoes when they receive their LACES of LOVE shoes that first day or so of school.
