Local kids receive new athletic shoes

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Hundreds of local school kids will receive free athletic shoes, all thanks to Kaiser Permanente and the After-School All-Stars program.

"We've got about 450 pairs, so we'll be able to give shoes to four of our schools this holiday season," said Tyree Dillingham with After-School All-Stars.

Padres player Will Venable was on hand Tuesday to help fit some of the kids into their new shoes and run some drills with them.

Kaiser Permanente holds a shoe drive, then donates the shoes to the After-School All-Stars.

The All-Stars program provides free after school activities for 4,000 San Diego children every day.

    The record-setting late- summer heat wave that has had San Diego County sweltering is expected to begin to ease up Tuesday night, but -- in terms of causing misery -- lower temperatures may be offset by humidity from Tropical Storm Odile, forecasters said.
