The Sunset Club started the “Happy Feet” event in 2018, and with the support of the local New Balance Factory Store, held the third annual event on September 19th. TheSunset Club works with preschool children who are identified by the Children’s Center as needing some type of financial support. New Balance helps by providing the shoes and socks at a generous 40%-50% discount off the retail price.
Event leader Amy Caimano and her team of 22 volunteers were a huge success providing shoes to 105 children, by using a $3,000 District Grant. The set-up on Friday afternoon went quickly and strict COCID-19 protocols were followed to keep the children and volunteers safe.
Many volunteers enjoyed a dinner together after the set-up at Street Meet Restaurant.
