Ethan Harris, 11, who is famous in Bryant for his fundraising efforts to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Bryant, is starting a new project Saturday.
Ethan will be collecting new tennis shoes and monetary donations to purchase shoes for members of the Boys & Girls Club of Bryant.
Residents can stop by the Alcoa Exchange near Shoe Carnival to make donations from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday.
Girls shoe sizes 13 through 2 are most needed, said Carla Harris, Ethan's mother.
"It's difficult to pinpoint a specific size when so many children, of all sizes, need them," Harris said.
Candidates are continuing to file for municipal positions to be determined in the November general election.
The recent filing period opened at noon July 25 and closes at noon Aug. 15.
