On Wednesday, December 19th, Garden City Meals on Wheels distributed 68 pair of slippers to home bound Garden City Senior Citizens for the Garden City Business Alliance's 1st Annual Slippers for Seniors. Local Garden City Businesses raised funds to cover the cost of the slippers which were purchased from Avon Independent Sales Representative Jill Lezotte-Kates.
Lezotte-Kates, the previous owner of Avon Westland, is currently hosting her 5th Annual Slippers for Seniors in Westland. When Lezotte-Kates owned her store, she wanted a way to give back to the community and "Avon sells amazing slippers. We had a collection box at our register year round for spare change, which covered the cost of the slippers" Lezotte-Kates is a 1980 graduate of Garden City East High School.
This is an ongoing fundraiser and all money collected will go toward slippers for seniors. Donate here or look for a collection box at your local Garden City Business.
