Sleep Country USA, a sleep shop chain headquartered in Seattle, collected more than 5,000 pairs of shoes in its fifth annual shoe drive for foster children. Donations were up 32% over 2009. “For children who have very little, the joy of getting something new is immeasurable—even an item that many of us take for granted like a new pair of shoes,” said Julie Guay, executive director of Blue Skies for Children in Bellingham, Wash. The retailer’s Foster Kids Program provides support to foster children and their families in Oregon and Washington by sponsoring drives for clothing, school supplies and holiday gifts.
