Shoes for Students
Thanks to funding received from several grants and foundations, in September the Coalition conducted our first Shoes for Students program. Students at five Moore County primary and elementary schools were identified by the school social workers and guidance counselors. Referred students were scheduled to visit Shoe Carnival in Aberdeen to be fitted for new athletic shoes. Over two weeks, the Coalition provided new shoes to 206 Moore County students! A big thank you to our funders, Shoe Carnival, and all the volunteers and school employees who helped make this possible!
