OGDEN -- Your Community Connection has issued an emergency announcement for new children's shoes for its Spirit of Giving drive.
YCC collects names of children in need and puts together a Christmas package from Santa with winter coats, scarves, hats, etc.
Executive director Julee Smith said Thursday that Payless Shoes has been generous, but the drive is still desperately short of shoes for the 400 children on the list. Shoes of all sizes are needed for children, from toddlers to young adults.
This year's deliveries will be Monday. YCC, at 2261 Adams Ave., is open today until 6:30 p.m. for donations.
Smith said the office also will be open for donors from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
