The City of Santa Clarita has partnered with Soles 4 Soles to gather shoes and distribute new and gently used shoes in the United States and abroad to those in need. They are collecting from now until January 31st. There are five drop off locations; Santa Clarita City Hall, Santa Clarita Activities Center, Canyon Country Library, Old Town Newhall Library and the Valencia Library. According to Soles 4 Soles, there are an estimated 300 million children world-wide that lack an adequate pair of shoes. Soles for Soles was founded in 2004 after a tsunami hit Southeast Asia. To date Soles 4 Soles has distributed over 19 million shoes to over 127 countries.
