Members of Eglin Air Force Base helped the kids living at Children in Crisis by donating over 150 pairs of shoes valued at $7,500. Thanks to the generous donations from the members, the kids living at the CIC Neighborhood will have an extra pair of shoes to start the new year off right.
The shoe donation collection was called “Soles for Souls” and it was coordinated throughout the base by MSgt Laveena Pugh. The shoe donation goal was to help the more than 100 children that will call CIC home this year.
According to Ken Hair, CIC President & CEO, “The donation helped provide our children with much needed shoes and a BIG SMILE! The donation truly makes a difference and we are very thankful.”
