For more than 10 years, the Rotary Club of Brookings-Harbor has provided gift certificates for shoes in a program we call Rotary SoleMates.
More than 1,200 gift certificates have been handed out to children in the Brookings-Harbor community.
The club arranges with local retailers to honor the club's certificates - valued at up to $30 for grade school children and $40 for middle and high school. The certificates are provided to the schools, where the staff uses them to help needy families. By using gift certificates, the child gets both shoes and the experience of shopping for something they will be proud to wear.
