Marion - East Cedar Rapids Rotary will be hosting a Waffle Breakfast and Silent Auction from 7:30-10:30 a.m., May 17th at Vernon Middle School (1350 4th Ave Marion, IA 52302). The proceeds from this event will benenfit "Shoes for Kids". This program provides “Shoe Cards” valued at $20.00 which are available from the school nurses in all the Cedar Rapids and Marion Elementary, Middle, and High Schools. The nurses assess the children in need and give them a card and help them get to Payless Shoes to pick out a pair of new shoes with their parent, guardian, or responsible adult. Payless Shoes is also involved by adding an additional discount so the child can get the most for his or her money.
