A "Day Without Shoes" provides warmth to needy

It may be getting colder outside, but that’s not stopping some Pittsburg State University students and employees from pledging to go shoeless for a day.

On Wednesday, Nov. 7, the PSU Fashion Merchandising Association will host a “Day Without Shoes,” a poverty awareness campaign to raise money for children without shoes. The group will hold a kickoff party at 8 a.m. in room 201 of the Family and Consumer Sciences building. Students, faculty, and staff in attendance will then head out to work and class without their shoes – instead armed with fliers about the cause.

The event is sponsored by TOMS shoes, a company that gives away a pair of shoes for each pair sold.
