VPLS raised $3,105 for Shoes that Fit, which equates to roughly 124 pairs of shoes, during 2018’s holiday season. Shoes That Fit takes monetary donations and goes out and buys brand new shoes for children in need. Their goal is to tackle the most visible sign of poverty in order to prevent bullying and boost children’s’ self esteem.
In 2017, VPLS filled over 5 large boxes of toys as a donation to Toys For Tots. Toys for Tots is a unique organization that provides not only toys to children in need, but also mentorship. Marines deliver the toys to children during the holiday season in hopes to make the children feel special and act as a role model for them.
VPLS has continually donated to OC Food Bank since 2010 and in total has given roughly 4,300 lbs of canned food. The OC Food Bank works to end hunger in Orange County which affects 456,000 people every month. In addition, 42% of those experiencing hunger are children, which greatly influences their ability to learn and grow.
In November 2018, VPLS was able to raise over $900 for the Movember Foundation through selling Movember-themed VPLS merchandise and hosting a Movember block party alongside some of our favorite partners, Aerohive and Cradlepoint. The Movember Foundation provides a community for men experiencing testicular cancer, prostate cancer, and mental health in order to lessen the impact and change the journey.
