Kays-Ponger & Uselton Funeral Homes and Cremation Services urge the community to remember less-fortunate children as they head back to school this year. Often, back-to-school expenses can overwhelm the budgets of low-income families. Because shoes may be one of the more expensive items, families may not always be able to provide children with back-to-school footwear.
Kays-Ponger & Uselton Funeral Homes and Cremation Services want to help by sponsoring the back-to-school shoe drive.
Please drop off new tennis shoes by July 24th to one of our locations, 635 East Marion Avenue Punta Gorda or 2405 Harbor Blvd Port Charlotte. For more information please visit www.kays-ponger.com or call 941-639-1133.
