Kiwanis Club's Boots and Shoes Program

The Annual Boots and Shoes Program, sponsored by the Euclid Kiwanis Club was a great success.  During the month of November, Marie Dula contacted the Euclid School system and all of the Catholic schools in Euclid to ask for names of children who could use a pair of boots or shoes.  Certificates were mailed to the parents telling them of two different dates in December, when they could come to the PayLess Shoe Source to purchase a pair of boots or shoes for their child.  They were  authorized a $25.00 gift certificate, to pay for their purchases.

A big thank you to the staff at the Euclid Payless Shoe Source and its manager, who made the event a special affair.  Parents were allowed to come into the store before business hours, to make their selections.  The children were given hats and gloves along with a Christmas goodie bag, an tooth brushes from  our President, Dr. Kari Cunningham, who was on hand to put on a correct brusing, of the teeth, demonstration to children who had asked especially about flossing.  It was a happy time, not only for the children who received the gifts, but also for the Kiwanis members who were there to greet and assist the parents and children.

Our goal was to give out 100 gift certificates this year.  We almost reached that goal.  Thanks to every one who worked on this project.  Remember that all the money raised by the Kiwanis Club in Euclid, is returned back to the community in the form of projects that benefit the community.

Upcoming events are the Bowl A Thon on February 18th at Wickliffe Lanes, Honor the Citizen, Youth, Kiwanian, and Business of the year awards, The 200th Street Stroll, Our Pancake Breakfast on Palm Sunday at the Manor Country Cabin.  If you would like to become a part of this active group, contact us at
