It's back to school this week and that means kids will be needing good gym shoes for P.E.

FitnessWorks is collecting gym shoes and socks for students attending Kishwaukee Elementary.

As reported by WIFR News, they started collecting in July and will continue to collect both socks and gym/ tennis shoes for kids between the grades of Kindergarten through fifth grade until Next Monday, August 31st.

Their goal is to collect 300 pairs of shoes for the students attending Kishwaukee Elementary. They're target delivery date is Thursday, September 3rd.

If you would like to participate in adding to the collection, visit their location at 3619 Morsay Drive in Rockford, call 815-988-6901 or visit their website: for more information.

Now I think that is a really neat idea to help needy kids here in the stateline.
