Women and children living at the YWCA’s Sara McKnight Transitional Living Center, 3700 Altura, got a special delivery of holiday cheer on Dec. 22.

Members of the Rubin family and local philanthropist Gerald Rubin gave each of the 40 women a gift of $100. Rubin’s 13-year-old grandson, Drew Frank, gave each child a new pair of Nike shoes. It’s something Rubin has been doing for years, and this year, Drew joined in. In November, Drew gave new shoes and socks to 400 students at Beall Elementary School using funds he received as bar mitzvah gifts.
