Asm. Chris Holden sponsored his Annual Holiday Celebration on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. Each year he asks guest to bring athletic shoes in sizes of Youth 10 up to Adult 12 to support the organization Shoes That Fit. He supports this organization that tackles one of the most visible signs of poverty by giving kids in need new athletic shoes so they can attend school with dignity and joy. When children attend school in shoes that look good and fit, it positively impacts self esteem, physical activity, behavior and school attendance.
In order to support this worthy cause, the Pasadena Chapter of AKA in partnership with PAIF donated over 90 pairs of shoes and over 130 pairs of socks to Shoes That Fit during Asm. Holden’s annual gathering. We would like to thank everyone that donated to this worthy cause! Your generosity truly made a difference and many children will benefit from these gifts.
