Wilkinson Center- MAX NEEDED HAS BEEN REACHED

THANK YOU! REGISTRATION CLOSED - WE HAVE REACHED THE MAXIMUM VOLUNTEERS NEEDED.

The TIAA Community Involvement team has recently learned of an event coming up in July that might be interesting to TIAA members and we have agreed to support the event as we have done in the past.  The event is the “Back to School Shoe Drive” sponsored by the Wilkinson Center and which will be conducted at the Payless Shoe Store located at 1918 S Buckner Blvd, Dallas, TX 75217.  The date and time of the event will be Monday, July 31, 2017, from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm.  Plan on meeting at the venue’s address (we will notify volunteers of transportation details by e-mail prior to the event). 

Our services for the event will be to greet an assigned family, take them through the aisles of shoes, find the correct shoe size and style for each child, fit the shoe to make sure it fits, than escort the family to the checkout counter where their free shoes will be logged and paid for by the Wilkinson Center staff. 

Last year the event coordinator indicated that over 1,500 children got new shoes for back to school through this effort.  This shoe drive is a life saver for numerous families that would not be able to afford new shoes for their school age children.

Monday, July 31, 2017 - 1:00pm to 3:30pm
