Kindness is Magic Inc. partnered with 35 schools in the Bethlehem Area School District, East Penn School District, and Saucon Valley School District to collect gently used and new shoes from September through November 24, 2018. Thanks to the support of the Lehigh Valley community we collected 7,900 pairs (8,246 lbs) of gently used and new shoes raising $3,298.40!
