The theme for the 2017 Vallejo Outreach is “Let’s Get Ready for School!”
This year’s event will take place at the Waterfront Park on Saturday, August 12 beginning at 11 am.
Share A Pair
One of the great successes of last year’s event was “Share A Pair.” Through the generosity of individuals, service clubs, and businesses, we collected and distributed over 500 pairs of new shoes for elementary school students.
The goal for 2017 is to give away 1,000 pairs. Every child deserves to start school on the right foot with a new pair of shoes!
Health Fair & more
In addition to the shoe giveaway, Vallejo Outreach provides a Health Fair featuring dental and eye exams, diabetes screenings, and access to a number of Social Service Agencies. Other activities will include a backpack giveaway, an awesome Kid’s Carnival, haircuts, free lunch for all, and groceries too.
Anyone willing to donate shoes may do so by purchasing one or more pairs for children in 1st-5th grade. Drop off the shoes at The Hill Vallejo, located at 210 Locust Drive, by August 4. You can also make a financial contribution which will be used to purchase shoes from local stores. To donate online click here.
