Actress and mother of two Marcia Cross teamed up with DSW to host a back-to-school picnic for L.A. moms last Thursday to benefit OPCC, the largest provider of housing and social services on the Westside of Los Angeles County and one of Cross’ personal charities. Each attending mom walked away with a pair of white Converse sneakers to personalize for their children at the picnic’s custom graffiti station and a VIP goodie bag stuffed with cosmetics and accessories.
Skechers announced yesterday that it would donate more than 54,000 pairs of shoes through its Bobs program to support Baby2Baby, a charity that provides families in need with essential baby gear and clothing. Working with donating partner Fashion Delivers, the first shipment of 1,600 new pairs of Bobs arrived for Baby2Baby’s third annual holiday party at the charity’s L.A. headquarters. During the event, families and children in need decorated their new shoes with celebrity guests Gwen Stefani, Jessica Alba, Michelle Monaghan, Nicole Richie, Molly Simms, Busy Phillipps and Julie Bowen.
