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.

3 Facts Crippling California's Housing Recovery

Source: HousingWire

While California’s job growth and economy continue to improve, major hurdles remain for housing’s recovery. Firstly, affordability is a huge concern as rapid home price increases, mixed with a lack of affordable inventory is leaving little room for first-time borrowers to jump into the market. Tight credit and stagnant incomes are another concern if prices remain high.
