Shoes for Students

Held in early August each year, Shoes for Students provides families with the opportunity to apply to receive a pair of shoes for each of their children.

This past August (2020), we served 9 families totaling 21 school-aged children. Each child received a pair of new shoes, specifically purchased for the child, as well as a backpack. 

Check back next year for more information on our 2021 Shoes for Students event and dates to apply!
