Rotary Club of Hilton Head Island held Happy Feet & Warm Bodies. The event distributed shoes and jackets to children in the Hilton Head Island area. The shoes were donated by Belk and their distributors, Trimfoot, BCNY, Deer Stags & LA Gear. A special thanks goes to Scott Sutton and his team at Belk for their efforts to make the event a success.
Happiness is a new pair of shoes…..a really cool new pair of shoes. For many of our Island school children, ‘new shoes’ is a rare event. So our Club made Happy Feet. Funded in part by our District Matching Grant of $3000 (thanks to the Rotary Foundation money that gets returned to us), and in partnership with Belk’s Department Store, a carefully selected group of 200 children from the HHI Early Childhood and Elementary schools were invited to come to the store and be fitted for a new pair of shoes and new jackets. There were several styles from which to choose.
