Community Gathers to Support Students in Need at 6th Annual Aldabella Scarpa Shoe Giveback Event Aug. 15

Elementary Girls Receive Shoes, Backpacks, School Supplies, Haircuts, Cupcakes & More!

LA PUENTE, CA--(Marketwired - August 13, 2014) - Days before the school bell will ring, 300 elementary school girls will walk down a "red carpet" and receive sweet surprises… designer shoes, backpacks filled with school supplies, free haircuts, cupcakes and more at the 6th Annual Aldabella Scarpa Shoe Giveback Event. The Giveback Event is Friday, August 15 from 10 a.m. to Noon at Villacorta Elementary (located at 17840 E. Villacorta Street, La Puente, 91744).

An outpouring of community support allows Aldabella Scarpa owner and alumnus, Monica Gonzales, to give back to La Puente schools in the Rowland Unified School District. Community members have donated school supplies for the backpacks courtesy of California Credit Union, and in addition to the designer shoes, students will receive: free haircuts from Supercuts West Covina, tacos from Taco Nazo, take part in craft activities thanks to Home Depot in City of Industry, enjoy cupcakes from The Cake Mamas, entertainment by Hot 92.3 FM, dental kits from Tri-City Smiles in Hacienda Heights, and will visit additional sponsor-booths of SpeedZone, East Valley Health Center at Villacorta School, and Friends of the Heart for school supplies. Additional event sponsors are Walmart City of Industry, Global Processing System, OMG Hair Accessories, Krispy Kreme (off Azusa Blvd. in City of Industry), Starbucks and Stater Brothers (off Amar Rd. in West Covina).

"We want these young girls to have an amazing, positive experience and not allow circumstances in their lives to create limits. Our community supports them and we want them to dream big," said Gonzales. 

Students were pre-selected by school staff from Hurley, Northam and Villacorta Elementary Schools, part of the Rowland Unified School District.
