Every year, our club in partnership with Kohl’s Department Store, donates money to assist children in need to purchase school clothing and shoes. The children are selected by the local Samaritan Center.
This last Friday, our Shoes for Little Soles event had 24 recipients receive the giveaway. Our club along with the help of Kohl’s had many volunteers show up to help enrich the lives of these children. The event was organized by our club Community Chair, David Howe. As usual, Dave did an excellent job, and Simi Valley Sunset Rotary club came in to help with one of our favorite events all year. To the well deserved students, have a great school year.
This year Simi Sunset spent about $4,400 on the event, Kohl’s generously gave about $3,500 in discounts, and approximately $800 in Kohl’s cash was generated to give to the Simi Valley Samaritan Center.
