Town Partners with Local Charity for Thanksgiving Shoe Drive
Miami Lakes, FL - The Town of Miami Lakes has partnered with Loving Soles for the second year in a row in an effort to collect shoes for the needy in time for the Thanksgiving holiday. The local charity dedicated to providing shoes to Miami's homeless, founded by Tony Garcia, Dr. Daryl Gershbein, Dr. John McGoohan, and Ileana McGoohan's teenage children, will donate gently worn shoes to Camillus House.
“As we approach the holiday season, we’re remaindered of our good fortune and the importance of helping others,” said Councilman Tony Lama. “Last year, our community donated over 400 pairs of shoes. With the help of Loving Soles, and the residents of our community, I know we can exceed last year’s numbers”.
The shoe drive is scheduled to take place throughout the month of November, just in time for Thanksgiving. Please bring your gently worn shoes to Town Hall located at 6601 Main Street in Miami Lakes from November 1-22, with a closing ceremony taking place at 10 am on Saturday, November 22 at Town Hall.
