Payless ShoeSource has selected Community Assistance Network (CAN) as a partner in the Payless Shoes 4 Kids Program, a national grass-roots effort to deliver $1 million of free shoes to children of families in need this holiday season.

The $15 shoe gift coupons are redeemed toward a pair of children’s shoes at Payless ShoeSource.

Nonprofit interest to participate in this program was overwhelming. With more than 2,600 nonprofits applying, only 630 were selected to help blanket the nation with the free gift of shoes.

The national non-profit organization encourages friends and family in California to call the Seniors EyeCare Program at (800) 222-EYES and connect the seniors in their lives with a no-cost eye exam.
