Wanted to make sure everyone here saw this. UCLA Athletics will be hosting a shoe drive for Haiti at this weekend's Women's Basketball and Gymnastics home events. The shoe drive is in conjunction with Sport Chalet's partnership with Soles 4 Souls, who have committed to providing 1 million pairs of shoes to aid in the recovery and building process in Haiti. That's pretty cool.
So if you are heading out to Westwood this weekend, take your new or gently worn shoes to Pauley Pavilion at one or both of the following events this weekend:
- Women's Basketball Game - Saturday, January 30th at 2pm
- Women's Gymnastics Meet - Sunday, January 31st at 2pm
Shoe collection will take place from 1:00pm-2:00pm. All shoes collected will be sent to Soles 4 Souls for distribution in Haiti. For information on Sport Chalet's partnership with Soles 4 Souls, CLICK HERE.
