Shoes for Miles 2020
The community donated 227 pairs of new kids' shoes to benefit the People's City Mission of Lincoln this year!

Through your participation, we were able to make a difference in the lives of local families in need, while honoring Miles and shining a light on congenital heart defects. Check back next February 2021 for details on the next campaign!
How to donate shoes

Toddlers, sizes 11, 12 and 13
