Shoe Drive in Goodyear a Big Success

 

 

(GOODYEAR, AZ) - The "Back to School Shoe Drive," partnering MEGA Radio and the West Valley cities, was a huge success. The shoe drive was part of a joint effort with the cities of Goodyear, Avondale, Tolleson, Buckeye, Litchfield Park, Glendale, Peoria and Surprise as members of the Luke West Valley Recreation Committee, part of the Luke West Valley Mayor's Committee. In total, the effort collected approximately 150 pairs of new shoes for West Valley children headed back to school.

 

City of Goodyear employees donated 43 pairs of new shoes to help Goodyear families who could not afford new shoes for their children. This was the largest donation of any West Valley city.

 

The shoes collected in Goodyear were brought to Eliseo C. Felix Elementary School in Goodyear, where they will be distributed to Goodyear school children in need.
