Lenny's Shoe and Apparel Donates over $4,000 worth of fall boots to Lund
WILLISTON, VT - Lenny's Shoe & Apparel donated $4,375 worth of fall boots to Lund this morning.
"With the chilly fall weather hitting our region this week, everyone starts to look through their closets for warm jackets and boots," said Amanda Cashin, Marketing Director at Lenny's Shoe & Apparel. "Many of the young mothers served by Lund are concentrating on preparing their babies for the cold months ahead. This donation focuses on these moms who strive to make their children comfortable."
The 35 pairs of red, green and black Martino boots will be distributed among young women in the residential and education programs at Lund. The integrated family support, education, treatment and adoption programs at Lund served over 3,500 women, men and children across the state last year.
"We are very grateful to Lenny's Shoe and Apparel for this generous donation," said Charlotte Blend, Communications and Foundations Coordinator at Lund. "There is great need across all our programs for such practical assistance for our moms. Having shoes that are warm and waterproof in this changing weather helps make the walk from the bus stop to our high school completion program or our early childhood program easier and more comfortable. Donations such as these show our clients that the community cares about their needs as well as those of their children."
Our mission is to help children thrive by serving families with children; pregnant or parenting teens and young adults, and adoptive families. Lund focuses on three goals: strengthening families, reducing child abuse and neglect, and helping to create new families through adoption. For more information, visit www.lundvt.org.
