Get Busy Livin' Foundation collecting shoes for Soles 4 Souls

Updated:

The memory of a young Pittsburg man lives on as students and members of the community collect shoes to send to Haiti.

The Get Busy Livin' Foundation was started in memory of Dylan Meier, who was well known throughout the Pittsburg community.

This is the third year the foundation has partnered with Soles 4 Souls and the Pittsburg School district.

Students are encouraged to bring old or new pairs of shoes that will be sent to children in Haiti.

"Even though they may not personally have known Dylan and known much about the Get Busy Livin' Foundation I think it does make me feel better knowing that those kids are giving and Dylan keeps giving and Dylan keeps giving and he'll get to still touch the lives with this foundation," says Bryan Mahnken, a family friend of the Meier family.

If you'd like to donate shoes to the Soles 4 Souls drive CLICK HERE for our website for a complete list of businesses around town that have donation boxes.

The Get Busy Livin' foundation is also hosting a 5K Run and Walk on Saturday April 27.
