Through the offices of civic leader Ruben Estrada, more than 1,000 pairs of new shoes will be distributed this holiday season to New York Goodwill, Newburgh Boxing Club, East Harlem Council, Providence House and numerous other organizations.

Estrada, second from right, his sons and volunteers such as Christ the King Regional High School President Michael Michel, left, board chairman and former state Sen. Serf Maltese and American Legion past Commander Gene Burch recently loaded the shoes onto a truck at CTK in Middle Village for distribution.

The donation was a combination endeavor between CTK, American Legion Continental Post 1424, Maltese’s staff, alum Anthony Como and other benefactors.

Welcome to the discussion.
