Shoes for Siouxland hopes to put shoes and socks on everyone's feet
Shoes and socks. Most of us put them on and take them off without a second thought.
But what if you didn't have any?
One Siouxland family is aiming to put shoes and socks on every foot in Siouxland who doesn't have them and all in the name of a man who's mission in life was to help others.
"My brother-in-law, Ted Jolin, passed away back in October and he was a generous guy. He one day gave his shoes off his feet to a homeless man. Carry on his legacy and do something in his honor," said Valerie Rogers.
During Sunday's event, Siouxlanders brought in new and gently used shoes which will then go to the Sanford Center in Sioux City to be given to people who need them.
"It's to celebrate him because he passed away but I think it's a good cause because we are getting a lot of shoes for people around Siouxland. It kind of means a lot to me because I like to be kind and I really miss my uncle," said Peyton Salberg.
The event was held at Navarrete's in Riverside and featured a taco bar, silent auction and a raffle.
