Nike has donated to the Assistance league of bend over 400 pairs of brand new athletic shoes for their "Operation School Bell" program.

 

League spokesperson Judy Uriz says it was a matter of "ask and ye shall receive."

 

"We just didn't quite fit into their program, because they like to work with sports programs. But we talked to them several times and, she say 'You know what, there is one thing we can do for you. We have some samples come in, and if you'd like to make the decision today, we can send a couple hundred shoes to you, with just a couple of sizes.' And we said ok, we'll take them."

 

Uriz says there are 35 different shoe styles; and most will fit middle and high school kids.

 

The Family Access Network, Latino organizations and CASA have given the league names of about 100 kids who could use the shoes.

 

The shoes will be distributed on April 6th at the Assistance League Bend Chapter House.

 

If you know a needy child that could use some shoes, contact the FAN or CASA Offices.

 

Also, dental hygienists from the Kemple Clinic will also be at the giveaway site, offering free dental exams and oral care instruction to eligible children.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
