It's been said time and again that we live in the breadbasket of the world, yet many families struggle to put food on the table.
But one effort is underway to alleviate at least one worry for parents: putting shoes on their kids' feet.
Madera Mayor Brett Frazier and Nate Lamattina joined us on Great Day Thursday morning to tell us all about the Kicks For Kids shoe collection drive.
Kicks For Kids organizers say they are collecting new and gently used shoes for underprivileged children of Madera.
Shoes can be dropped off at the following Madera locations:
