Donate Women’s Shoes for Walk-A-Mile!

Walk-A-Mile in Her Shoes is an event hosted by the DeSales PACE (Peers Advising Counseling Educating) organization that raises awareness for rape, sexual assault and gender violence. All proceeds from the event go to help victims dealing with this horrible reality. We are in need of women’s shoes for participants who would like to walk in the event. If you would like to donate heels, sandals, or any type of women’s shoes, please drop them off in the box located in the Wellness Center of McShea.

If any students are going home for Labor Day weekend, be sure to bring back any women’s shoes you would like to get rid of and put them to good use to support this wonderful cause!
