Payless ShoeSource is going international with its second annual Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids program.
Through a network of community charities, the Topeka, Kan.-based firm will distribute more than $1.2 million, in the form of 77,000 coupons, toward a free pair of shoes to children in need. The coupons will be redeemable at any Payless ShoeSource store throughout the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and 10 Latin American countries, including Costa Rica, Colombia and Ecuador.
