Sorority plans huge feat for little feet
Give away 100,000 pairs of new shoes
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. and the Sigma Public Education and Research (SPEAR) Foundation are teaming up to provide new shoes for disadvantaged children across the nation as the youths head back to school.
The goal of the national drive, “Soles for Little Souls,” is to collect at least 100,000 pairs of shoes and distribute them to children in every community where Sigma Gamma Rho chapters exist.
Distribution will take place nationwide on Saturday, Aug. 13.
In the Antelope Valley, the Epsilon Chi Sigma Chapter is leading the effort. The shoes will be distributed to a local community-based organization, which will distribute them to the children. To find out more information about this event and how you can get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
