Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids Holiday Giving Program

Brockville, Ontario, December 2, 2013 - Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville is pleased to announce that we have been selected as an official partner of Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids, an annual giving program from Payless ShoeSource. We are among 750 charitable agencies representing all 50 states in the United States, as well as Canada, Puerto Rico and 11 Latin American countries. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville will be providing shoes to families on our client list.

This is the sixth year of the Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program. Although studies show that properly fitting shoes are important for children's health and development, a striking number of children don't own a pair of shoes that fit. We are working to remedy that here in Leeds and Grenville.

By helping families who struggle to provide their children with basic essentials on a daily basis, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Leeds and Grenville, in partnering with the Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program, hopes to relieve some of the stress parents feel.
