Shoe Drive

Thank you to everyone who helped Pueblo’s students STEP INTO SPRING! With the support of our members, staff, and Walmart, SunWest was able to purchase 350 pairs of new shoes for our 2023 STEP INTO SPRING event in partnership with Pueblo D60.

New, well-fitting shoes have been identified by counselors and teachers as one of the needs that most often go unfulfilled for Pueblo students. Several years ago, SunWest decided to try and help and so STEP INTO SPRING was born. In 2018 SunWest was recognized with a 1st place national Dora Maxwell Social Responsibility & Community Service Award for our very first STEP INTO SPRING shoe drive & giveaway.
