KEDS for KIDS – no feet left behind

$840.00 raised to buy new gym shoes!!!!


Thanks to all our Raffle Prize Sponsors and thanks to all that participated by

buying a raffle ticket(s). $840.00 was raised for the purchase of new gym shoes

for kids at Juniper, LaPine and Jewell Elementaries. We were able to purchase

84 new pairs of shoes, 48 pairs of socks and 6 pairs of extra shoelaces. A

donation of 7 pairs of gym shoes by Laura and Andy Schob brought the total

number to 91 pairs of shoes.

The shoes were delivered to Teacher Kaleo Renstrom atJuniper Elementary on

and Jewell Elementaries.

A special thank you to Laura Schob, our shoe shopping diva. She has an eye

for a bargain and an organized method for buying over 80 pairs of shoes at

once! Thank you also to Payless Shoes and their awesome employees Melanie

McCauley and Amethyst Miller, who donated an additional 20% discount AND

kept our orders organized.

The success of this raffle allowed us to really expand the program. Moving

forward, we hope to include as many Deschutes County Elementary Schools

as express interest. I will be attending a meeting of the County PE teachers in

March to discuss future goals and plans. Please contact me if you would like to be

involved future efforts.

. Kaleo will organize the distribution of the shoes going to LaPine
