LARAS House collects 1,325 pairs of shoes
LARAS House volunteer and fundraising chair Liz Hernandez, left, and Board President Valarie Lang appear thrilled with the 1,325 pairs of shoes they received in the shoe drive fundraiser that just ended May 10. The plastic bags stacked up behind them each contain 25 pairs of shoes. The shoes will be sold for 40 cents a pound and end up in a micro-business in a third-world country and sold to the poor.
