Shoe Drive a Success as Almost 200 Pairs Were Collected

March 7, 2008

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The recent shoe drive held by the UCSB men's volleyball team and Athletics Department turned out to be a complete success as 197 pairs of shoes and sneakers were collected during the Feb. 20 match against UCLA. The donations will go a long way in helping those in need.

All of the items will be given to Soles4Souls, a non-profit organization that distributes shoes to people and places in need on five continents.

The Gauchos would like to thank everyone that donated, including community members, students, staff, and athletes from other UCSB teams.
