Shoe Drive For Haiti At Southland Mall
Southland Mall, the only enclosed regional mall servicing South Miami-Dade County down to the Florida Keys and boasting over 1 million square feet of gross leasable space, has partnered with Old Navy and the Rotary Club of Perrine Cutler Ridge Palmetto Bay to hold a Shoe Collection Drive for the Haiti earthquake victims. The event will take place on Saturday, February 27th at the Old Navy store entrance and the fountain area inside the mall by TJ Maxx from 12 noon through 5 pm. The focus of the collection is shoes, but people are encouraged to donate new and gently used items, such as clothing, blankets, diapers, canned goods, and first aid kits. Cash and check contributions will also be accepted and forwarded to Food for the Poor.
â€œAmong the many needs that Haiti has right now, one of them is shoes; children are walking on glass and debris and workers need boots to wade through the rubbleâ€. â€œHaiti needs everyoneâ€™s support and Southland Mall is honored to be a part of this noble endeavor,â€ said Maggie Anzardo, marketing director at Southland Mall.
To help mitigate this need, for a limited time Old Navy is offering a special price on sandals, two for $5.00. The community is encouraged to participate. Help us send shoes to Haiti.
