The Sharing Center Central Brevard’s annual shoe drive, Every Step Counts, recently got a major boost from space program workers at Kennedy Space Center.
The Sharing Center is hoping others will follow in the footsteps of ELVIS3 contract (ai solutions, Saalex Solutions, Perspecta, ZIN Technologies, Aetos Systems & Red Canyon) at KSC and help the Sharing Center provide a new pair of shoes to each school child in need.
This year employees of companies working on the contract donated 102 pairs of shoes and $290.00, said David Brubaker President & CEO for the Sharing Center. “Not all families have the funds for back-to-school shoes and this program will help fill that void,” “It’s important today that kids start school feeling good about themselves.” The ELVIS3 KSC team decided to get involved 16 years ago when they researched worthy causes for their summer project. “We look forward to it every year,” Pam Pugmire with Saalex Solutions-KSC said.
