Last year, Windermere introduced the Kicks for Kids campaign—a back-to-school sneaker drive for low-income youth, distributed through Mary’s Place and the Boys and Girls Club of King County. Because every kid should start the school year with the confidence a new pair of “kicks” provides.
Windermere Mercer Island office owner, Julie Barrows, was overwhelmed by how true the need was for these kids and decided to spear head this year’s Kicks for Kids event. It started with a donation of 100 pairs of shoes by Julie herself. An additional 117 pairs of shoes have been pledged by agents in her office. The goal is to reach 300, so Julie and team are asking the community for donations.
Windermere Mercer Island will be accepting sneaker donations Monday – Friday 8:30am to 5:30pm and Saturday and Sunday 10:00am– 4:00pm from now until August 18.
