KSHB 41’s community project Gift of Sole raised $100,800 to help buy shoes for over 1,300 young people in the Kansas City area. Including a week-long donation drive and an in-person gala, this year’s Gift of Sole doubled the money raised in 2021. Gift of Sole is a partnership between KSHB 41, the Boys & Girls Club of Kansas City, the Urban Ranger Corps and the Scripps Howard Fund.

“The generosity and willingness from our audience to stand behind this project for yet another year means so much to me and our community,” said evening anchor Kevin Holmes. “The money raised will help so many more kids than I could have ever imagined. I’m very blessed and tremendously grateful to the station and the people of Kansas City for rallying behind this effort.”
