An event held by an area organization over the weekend was a big success.
After collecting for only one month, the Salvation Army on Ridge Street opened its doors Saturday morning for the annual shoe drive to a long line of community members waiting to shop.
Organizers say about 3,500 gently worn pairs of shoes were donated.
