Kicks 4 Kids will return this weekend, offering kids and young adults free shoes to wear into the new school year.
JD Woods and Anthony Harvey Jr., both Lawrence High School alumni, began Kicks 4 Kids in 2020 because they wanted to give back to their hometown community. They’ve also hosted Coats 4 Kids events during past winters.
This summer will mark Woods’ and Harvey’s fourth annual Kicks 4 Kids drive.
Community members are encouraged to donate new and gently used shoes of all sizes. For questions or to coordinate a location to drop off donated shoes beforehand, contact Woods at 785-979-7755 or Harvey at 785-979-7755.
The Kicks 4 Kids distribution is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 19 at the Lawrence High southwest parking lot, 1901 Louisiana St. Kids and young adults in need of shoes can stop by anytime during that window, and no registration is needed.
