Windermere Mercer Island will be participating in the 3rd annual Kicks For Kids shoe drive starting on Monday, August 1st. We are extremely proud to coordinate this annual drive! And the response from you — our community of clients, friends, family and neighbors — has been so huge each year. Kicks For Kids wouldn’t be the success it has been without your help.
If you would like to support a local child in need, to start back-to-school with a pair of shoes that fit, please bring (or ship) your donation of a pair of children’s shoes, or a $20 Payless Shoe Source gift card, to our office located at 2737 77th Avenue S.E., STE 100, Mercer Island, WA 98040.
Below are the FAQs regarding the shoe drive:
WHAT: A back-to-school sneaker drive for low-income youth, distributed through Mary’s Place

WHERE: Windermere Mercer Island is the collection point where you can drop off new athletic shoes or sneakers (youth sizes 1-6 and adult sizes 7-9) or $20 Payless Shoe Source gift cards from now through August 18th.
