Alhambra and SGV Rotary clubs to give shoes to homeless families

Two local Rotary clubs are making sure that homeless families in the San Gabriel Valley will have warm feet this winter. The families from Family Promise of San Gabriel Valley will shop for new shoes Saturday at Payless ShoeSource on Valley Boulevard, courtesy of the Alhambra Rotary and the San Gabriel Valley New Gen Rotary clubs.

"Members from the two clubs will be shopping side-by-side with the homeless families, getting to know them, and showing them that there are service clubs in the community that are here to help," stated New Gen Rotary member Christopher Paulson in an email to Alhambra Source. 

The Rotary clubs received grant funding from Rotary International District 5300 in the amount of $2,000 and will work with the Alhambra Payless store to ensure the homeless families go home with new pairs of shoes. The families and club members will shop before the store opens at 9 a.m.

Family Promise of San Gabriel Valley, a nonprofit organization that works with local churches to house and feed homeless families, helped identify local families who are in need of shoes.

“We are very grateful for the compassion and generosity of the Rotarians from Alhambra and New Generation,” said Karen Roberson, chairwoman of the Family Promise board of directors.
