Paula Maki recently received a donation of 80 shoes from Doctor Comfort Shoes. She says she has already delivered 20 pairs to people in the community, specifically at nursing homes. Maki is no stranger to giving and says wants to continue to help for as long as she can.

"I'm going to be giving these shoes to people in nursing homes, foster homes and assisted living," said Maki. "I just love to do what I do. This is my life. I live for this job and I wouldn't give it up for the world." 

Last year, Maki gave to more than 3,000 people in the community. This year, she says she has a goal to help 6,000. She says she is also looking for a successor. If people want to help out, they can contact her through her email:
