West Pierce Fire Collecting Shoes For Pierce County's Homeless

The fire department is working with UP Presbyterian Church to collect shoes that will be given at Project Homeless Connect on Oct. 26 in Tacoma

wants to help the 2,000 or so homeless residents of Pierce County do something that most of us take for granted: walk with shoes.

According to the University Place and Lakewood fire department's Facebook page, West Pierce is "teaming up with to help collect shoes for the homeless to be distributed at Project Homeless Connect on Oct. 26th at the Tacoma Dome."

"The goal is to collect 3,000 pairs of shoes around Pierce County for distribution at this event. Drop off shoes you or your family members have outgrown or just don't wear anymore. All sizes are needed (infant through adult), but no dress shoes please."

Donations are be accepted at: Station 31 (3631 Drexler Drive W. in University Place) and Station 20 (10928 Pacific Hwy SW in Lakewood). The deadline is Oct. 25th.

This is a great idea. We, at Tacoma Narrows Rotary club, are in. We have done this a few years back. Just hope we can find more shoes.
