Shoe shop donates 108 pairs to Milliken

MILLIKEN – When you’re forced to suddenly leave your home, usually you’re stuck with whatever clothes you have on and whichever pair of shoes you’re wearing.
Since the residents of the Evergreen and Centennial mobile home parks in Milliken were sent packing, there has been some relief in the form of donated clothing, food, and shelter. But shoes have been something else.
“I’m at the town center every day,” said Spanish-speaking resident and disaster relief volunteer Allison Saenz, “and everyone is walking around in contaminated flip-flops.”
