Admit it — you forgot that last weekend was the Wilkinson Center’s 21st annual shoe drive, which provides shoes and socks for needy neighborhood children.

Well, it’s not too late to help. You can donate on-line here or send a check to The Wilkinson Center, P.O. Box 720248, Dallas, 75372 (and note on the check that the money is for the shoe drive). And how much are we talking about? How does $16 a pair sound? Isn’t that about the cost of four mocha double lattes, or whatever those things are called?
