DAYTONA BEACH SHORES – More than 750 homeless Volusia County school students will receive new shoes this holiday season, thanks to a Christmas party at which party goers came bearing children’s footwear.

 

A spokeswoman for FUTURES Foundation for Volusia County Schools accepted the cache of shoes – along with 50 pairs of socks and 40 toys – earlier this week from the law office of Rue & Ziffra.

 

“FUTURES Foundation greatly appreciates the generosity of Rue & Ziffra and their guests in donating more than 750 pairs of new shoes to Volusia County Schools’ homeless students,” FUTURES Executive Director Cynthia Perrick Ramirez said Friday.

 

Ramirez said the generous donation helps the foundation assist Pam Woods, the Volusia County Schools homeless liaison, with the work she does with homeless students.

 

Woods, who is daily contact with social workers and counselors at each of the district’s 70 public schools, said they now can help meet some of the most basic needs for local homeless children.

 

“Community partners such as the FUTURES Foundation and business partners like Rue & Ziffra play a significant role in supporting these at-risk students’ success in school,” she said.

 

“I was thrilled to see so many shoes and toys for the homeless children of Volusia County Schools under the Christmas tree.  It was a wonderful sight, especially during this time of year when kids need these items more than ever,” said Allan Ziffra.
