We are elated that Arbor Trace donated 105 pairs of shoes to Laces of Love in September from our Shoe Party! That’s 105 children! Thank you so much to all those who participated! The Mission of this non-profit charitable organization is to provide new shoes to low income and disadvantaged children in Collier and Lee Counties. The shoes are then distributed through the schools. When a child takes off his worn-out holey shoes-some without souls-and puts on new shoes, pure gratitude comes across their face. Embarrassment and pain fade away and a transformation takes place, which dramatically changes a child’s life.
Jeanne Nara Nealon, Co-Founder of Laces of Love, says “Dear Sandy and the Community of Arbor Trace, Thank you so much for your wonderful donation of new shoes. This will help many children in Collier Schools and Shelters. May God Bless each one of you!” Jeanne
