Event Description

California’s 60,000 foster kids often walk a difficult path, leaving their homes with just the clothes on their backs. Like all children, they quickly outgrow essential items like shoes that fit, which allow them to walk to school comfortably, participate in P.E. class with their peers, and enjoy after school sports.

 

Please help give foster children a strong foundation for walking on the path to success by donating new shoes to Sleep Train’s Shoe Drive for Foster Kids. Sleep Train will be collecting new shoes in all sizes between March 19, 2012 and May 13, 2012.

 

Donations of new shoes in all sizes can be dropped off at any Sleep Train store. For more information or to find the nearest location please visit the store locator at http://www.sleeptrain.com or call 1-800-378-BEDS (2337). The store hours are M-F 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Selling my daughter on homeownership

David H. Stevens, president and CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association, advocates professionally for aspiring homeowners all across the nation by promoting a healthy entry-level housing market. But he cannot convince his own daughter that the time is right for her to buy a home of her own. Stevens argues that one of the best decisions he ever made was buying his first home at the age of 27 in 1984. Pointing to his own daughter, Stevens writes, “We cannot underestimate the impact of this decline in first-time buyers; the health of the housing market relies heavily on them.”
