"If The Shoe Fits . . ." Shoe Giveaway with Rita Case
Hundreds of kiddos received free shoes and socks courtesy of Rita Case, President and CEO of Rick Case Automotive Group. She funded the gift of 450 pairs of shoes and 900 pairs of Bombas socks.
Nike, Vans, Reebok, Converse, Sketchers, Fila, New Balance, and many other quality name brands, of all sizes and colors, were in boxes on tables around the perimeter of the gym. The boys and girls arrived in groups to choose a few pairs of socks and then decide which pair of new shoes they wanted to take home.
“I love to get these kids shoes,” Case said. "They go through them so fast.” The giveaway is an annual event, which Rita coordinates with Soles4Souls Inc., that provides new athletic shoes to children at the Boys & Girls Clubs in Coeur d'Alene and Post Falls. Mark Kuhnhausen, Executive Director, Boys & Girls Clubs of Kootenai County, said it was awesome to see the joy and excitement of the kids as they showed off their new footwear. “It’s just another way the community comes together,” he said. “We have people like Rita that care about our kids.”
