Sole Mates is a project that gives the opportunity to a select group of children at USD 501 to earn a pair of new shoes and socks.  The childrn complete 100 minutes of community service at their school and are then awarded a "check" valid for one pair of shoes.  The children are then brought to the North Payless Store on the third Tuesday of every month at 1:00 pm (October-April) to be paired up with a Rotary volunteer to shop for a new pair of shoes.  We need 12-15 volunteers each month that can commit approximately 30 minutes to assist these children in picking out a new pair of shoes.  If you would like to volunteer, contact Jessica Goubeaux: or call 608-1022.
