Remember getting a new pair of shoes every year for school? Many students in the Florence Unified School District come from homes that lack the money to buy that back-to-school staple. So Banner Ironwood Medical Center in San Tan Valley is hosting a shoe drive for them.
According to a news release, collection bins have been set up throughout the hospital to collect new pairs of shoes for students in need - all types of new shoes, from tennis shoes to sandals in a variety of sizes. Residents can drop off donations at the information desk in the main lobby at Banner Ironwood, 37000 N. Gantzel Road, July 17. Monetary donations may also be delivered to Ironwood, payable to Against Abuse/Project Bridge.
