Final week - Soles4Souls Summer Shoe Drive

I can't believe we've already come to the end of the Soles4Souls Summer Shoe Drive. I'm amazed at how much the community centers have collected in just a few short weeks. Today I paid visits to Los Padillas and Westside Community Centers.

I was blown away by how much these two centers had collected. Each center could have easily filled up two bins or more.

This is Westside's bin bursting at the seams and overflowing:

Another exciting part was getting to reward kids for giving shoes. Kids who donated were given raffle tickets and I had a chance to give away bowling and skating passes to a whole bunch of participants.

It was a rewarding experience all around -- and it's not over! I still have one last community center in the South Valley to visit tomorrow. See you in the morning, Mountain View!
