Freeway Insurance and Mega 104.3 Kick Off Back-to-School Season with Shoe Drive to Benefit Phoenix Students in Need


HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Freeway Insurance, one of the largest privately-owned insurance agencies in the United States, is partnering with Phoenix, AZ radio station Mega 104.3 for the “Shoes for Schools” campaign, a drive to collect new pairs of shoes for students in need at V.H. Lassen Elementary School in the Roosevelt School District.

“For many families, back-to-school expenses can take a sizeable bite out of monthly budgets”

From August 10 through August 20, Freeway Insurance will be accepting new shoe donations at 13 of its Phoenix-area locations. To generate awareness and to encourage the public’s participation, Mega 104.3 will promote the shoe drive through radio commercials and its website

“For many families, back-to-school expenses can take a sizeable bite out of monthly budgets,” said Valeria Rico, Chief Executive Officer of Confie, parent company of Freeway Insurance. “To relieve some of the financial burden on families, we’re thrilled to support this shoe drive so that more students are well prepared for a new and successful school year.”

Radio personality Manic Hispanic, of Mega 104.3’s Morning Show stated: “Shoes for School is a fundraiser I hold dear to my heart. A few years ago a teacher shared a heartfelt story with me. She told me about a little girl who was quiet, kept to herself and never played with the other kids. She noticed that she was embarrassed of her shoes. The teacher bought her a new pair of tennis shoes and watched her open up. Let’s make sure all the kids start the school year with a brand new pair of shoes.”

Freeway Insurance’s 13 locations near the Roosevelt School District in Phoenix will be accepting new shoe donations through August 20.
