The Topeka South Rotary Club hit a milestone on March 13th when they purchased shoes for their 200th student this school year.
Thirteen students from Ross Elementary and Scott Magnet arrived at Payless ShoeSource on Topeka Blvd. and, with a the help of their own personal shopper-a Rotary club volunteer- got to pick out a brand new pair of shoes and package of socks.
Topeka’s two Rotary organizations have teamed up to meet their goal of providing 500 pairs of shoes this school year. With the help of donations and a Rotary district grant, they’re nearing the finish line.
In the meantime, the Topeka South Rotary club has now provided just over 200 pairs of shoes to school children since August- all of them from Topeka Public Schools. Thank you for all that you do, Rotarians!
