  Our Lamorinda Book Group read Kristin Hannah’s The Four Winds depicting farmworkers’ families and the challenges they faced during the 1930’s Dust Bowl.
  Inspired by this story, we turned to present day Salinas Valley, Salad Bowl of the World, and the needs of farmworkers’ families today.
♥  We are partnering with, the Alisal Family Resource Center, and the Salinas Alisal School District to provide new shoes for children. The district serves 9,000 children in grades K-6.
  Each $30.00 donated will provide a pair of brand new, name brand athletic shoes to children.
  Our goal is $5,000. Thank you for your support!


Shoes That Fit is a 501(c)3 non-profit, whose mission is to tackle one of the most visible signs of poverty in America by giving children in need new athletic shoes to attend school with dignity and joy, prepared to learn, play, and thrive.
