Shiekh Shoes, retailer of trendy, high-quality shoes from our own Shiekh line and brand names like Nike, Jordan, Converse and Steve Madden, will kick off the holiday season by donating 250 turkey dinners and fixings to local families in need during the annual Shiekh Shoes Thanksgiving Giveback events Tuesday, Nov. 26, in San Bernardino and Compton.
Families chosen through nominations by community members will gather at Shiekh Shoes off Highland Avenue in San Bernardino to receive their dinners Tuesday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Entertainment will be provided by KQIE 104.7 with special giveaways from Shiekh Shoes and KQIE every 15 minutes.
Preselected families of students from Roosevelt Elementary School, the second largest elementary school in the Compton Unified School District, will be bussed to the Shiekh Shoes Community Center in Compton to pick up their meals Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Shiekh Ellahi, founder of Shiekh Shoes, and his family will be on hand distributing meals. Compton Mayor Aja Brown and other city officials will be in attendance.
Shiekh Shoes is a family company and believes that everyone deserves a complete family dinner to celebrate the holidays. Meals will include one frozen Hunstinger Premium turkey, potatoes, gravy, stuffing, corn, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce and one pie.
Last year, 100 turkeys were given away during the Thanksgiving Giveback in Compton. Shiekh Shoes hopes to continue to increase the number and reach of these meals to local families.
