It can be difficult to truly understand a person until you walk a day in their shoes. For many foster kids in the Bellevue area, this can mean old tattered shoes, two sizes too small.
To help prepare local foster kids for back to school, CF Kids and CF Kids Salon at Crossroads Shopping Center has set out to collect new shoes just in time for fall. The Shoe Drive runs from Saturday, August 14 though Sunday, August 22.
The goal of CF Kids is to collect 200 pairs of new shoes for local foster kids. To encourage donations, CF Kids Salon is offering $5 off a kids haircut for every pair of shoes donated.
In addition CF Kids will be having a Back To School Open House August 14 from 10 a.m., to 4 p.m. Kids will be able to do fun crafts, play games, get their faces painted and check out toy demonstrations.
CF Kids Salon is located at Crossroads Bellevue Shopping Center at 15600 NE Eighth St. and at this website. To schedule an appointment, call the Salon at CF Kids at 425-643-5437.
