Birthday parties for 11-year-old little girls should be full of all the preteen gadgets on her wish list. Not so for Marquita Walker’s party on Feb. 19 at the Brunswick Thousand Oaks Bowl in San Antonio.

With a heart of giving back to her community, Marquita requested that no personal presents be brought. Instead, she asked for shoes for disadvantaged kids in the East Central Independent School District for a shoe drive the Rotary Club of the Highlands is conducting.

So at her request, all her friends brought shoes: shoes of all sizes, shapes, and colors. Approximately 15 pairs were donated. Then on March 8, the drive was kicked off by presenting the birthday shoes to East Central Social Services Representative Raquel Hernandez.

“These shoes will go a long way into helping our children of the district,” Hernandez said. “It is sad that some children are not able to participate in recess class for lack of proper foot attire. Some will skip days of school because they have nothing to wear. Or they are wearing hand-me-down shoes that are several sizes too small.”
