Collecting Adult and Children's Shoes for Donation

Yak n Yarn along with other Fairlawn Plaza Merchants are collecting new and gently used adult and children's shoes between now and May 3. The evening of May 3 is Girl's Night Out, so drop off your shoes now or bring them on the 3rd..  All shoes will be given to Sole Reason, a  non-profit who will be giving the shoes to those less fortunate. 

Help us to "Change a Life" by donating a pair of  shoes.
