Arvest associates hosted a successful shoe drive at locations in Fayetteville and surrounding communities with more than 250 pairs of shoes collected for the ninth annual Walk a Mile in My Shoes event benefiting Ozark Guidance. The shoes, plus handbags and jewelry, were given to Ozark Guidance on Tuesday for sale in the April 5 and 6 fundraising event.

Dr. Laura H. Tyler, president and chief executive officer of Ozark Guidance, commended the bank’s commitment to helping support the nonprofit organization. “We’re overwhelmed by this tangible support for Ozark Guidance and the clients we serve,” Tyler said. “We want to express our thanks to all of the Arvest associates and Arvest customers who made this drive such a success. The generosity of our community partner and its customers will help us continue to fulfill our mission of saving and changing lives through compassionate, quality behavioral health services.”

Steven R. Hinds, vice president of philanthropy and development for Ozark Guidance, said the idea behind the Walk a Mile in My Shoes event goes beyond raising money. “We want to encourage our community to join us in breaking down stigma associated with mental health – to really take a look and ‘walk’ in someone else’s shoes,” Hinds said. “We also hope that through events like Walk a Mile, others may better understand the needs of those who battle disorders that interfere with the way they think, feel and act.”

The ninth annual Walk a Mile in My Shoes event includes a VIP Presale Party on April 5. Tickets are $50 and may be purchased by calling 479-725-5294. The sale begins at 8 a.m. April 6 and is open to the public. Both events are at the Holiday Inn, 1500 S. 48th St. in Springdale. More information is available at www.ozarkguidance.org/WaM *
