19th Annual Shoes for Children Benefit Performance “Just for You (A Celebration in Sharing)”

Join us in celebration of our 19th Annual Shoes for Children Shoe Drive and Benefit Performances as Shoes for Children’s cofounder, “Sweet Lou Collins,” welcomes collaborating arts organizations KJ Aquarius Productions, Trinity Academy of Arts, and Mosaic Sky Performing Arts Company in presenting "Just for You (A Celebration in Sharing)."

This musical performance play montage pays tribute to the value of practicing the seven principles of Kwanzaa during the holiday season and throughout our daily lives. Within a slice-of-life plot that follows a group of youth as they learn about and prepare for an upcoming Kwanzaa festival, this original presentation, written and directed by Kent Jackman, is wrapped in humor, history, and nostalgia—making it a festive holiday treat for family members of all ages!

Of all the gifts we share with one another which will have the most value with time? A diamond bracelet? That brand new car? Or was it the latest iPad or mobile device? Within an entire lifetime of giving and receiving will it be cherished memories and sacred sacrifices, or outdated objects that become our most meaningful possessions?

Admission to these benefit performance events is one new pair of children's athletic shoes sized to fit preschoolers to high school youth. Donations will also be accepted from November 19th - December 23rd, at all Las Vegas-Clark County Library District branches. For more information, regarding our annual Shoe Drive and Benefit Performance events, please call the West Las Vegas Library at 702-507-3989. All donated shoes will be distributed to children within neighboring elementary schools and also donated to local charities.
