LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) – Approximately 400 Lubbock-area children will receive a pair of shoes and socks at a promotional event Saturday and Sunday.
“This has been a staple of the Lubbock Association of REALTORS calendar every year for a long time,” communications director Brenda Fisher told KCBD. “It’s amazing what a new pair of shoes can do for a child!”
The host of the event, the Lubbock Association of REALTORS, worked with the organization Communities In Schools to find the children who could benefit the most from a new pair of shoes.
Many children come from low-income families and schools, Fisher told KCBD. All children in a chosen household receive a new pair of shoes.
The event was also sponsored by:
- Alliance Credit Union
- Western title
- Service title
The event will take place at the South Plains Mall at Shoe Department. Selected students can pick up their shoes at any time between 7 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday and 7 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Sunday.
The children have already been chosen.
