A local organization is asking for support by enjoying a great meal

Members of the Heartland are encouraged to support a local organization by enjoying a great meal.

Shoes from the Heart has teamed up with Coltonâ??s Steakhouse in Kirksville to provide the organization with a percentage of its proceeds.

A fraction of the money raised between 5-8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 29 will be donated to Shoes from the Heart.

That money will stay local and be put towards the purchase of new tennis shoes for kids in need.

â??Whenever somebody gives out to an organization, so much of that money is actually spread out for administrative fees and goes to other places and just a little bit goes towards one little spot, â?? said Donnie Bonuchi, Shoes from the Heart Co-Founder. â??One-hundred percent of whatever we raise goes right back to shoes for kids.â??

Shoes from the Heart is continuing to expand since its establishment in Macon County. It currently provides shoes to kids in 21 counties.

Aside from their usual shoe fitting events, members of the organization are working hard to set up a Shine for the Shoes run/walk that will take place in October.

We will post more information on that event as it becomes available.
