A ‘sole’ shoe gift can make all the difference

There is still nearly a week left to participate in Shoes That Fit’s Spring Campaign. The annual event is aimed at brightening springtime for children in need by providing them with desperately needed new shoes along with other goodies.

If you’re interested in becoming a “Springtime Buddy,” here’s how it works. Stop by a participating local business and pick up a tote bag featuring a kid’s gender, and shoe size. Then, fill the tote with a pair of new athletic shoes along with socks and plenty of treats. Then, return the tote before Friday, March 28.

Participating businesses include Shoes That Fit’s new Village headquarters, The Last Drop Café (119 Harvard Ave. in Claremont), along with the following merchants:  42nd Street Bagel Café, A. Kline Chocolatier, Aromatique Skin & Body Care, the Cheese Cave, Cloud Nine Paperie, Colors 91711, Dr. Grubb’s, Escape Salon, Folk Music Center, Hendricks Pharmacy, I Like Pie Bake Shop, Jacqueline’s Home Décor, Pita Pit Claremont, Replay Vintage, Rocky's Laundry & Cleaners, Some Crust Bakery, Sonja Stump Photography, Tattle Tails, The Bath Workshop and Vom Foss. Totes are also available from Kiwanis Club of Claremont.

For more information, call (909) 482-1870.
