Business donates shoes to needy Walker and Riverside school kids

Published: Monday, May 13, 2013 at 11:40 AM.

"We like to do it in the spring with summer approaching," facility administrator and nurse Don Wardle said. "A lot of the kids are really underprivileged and this will be their only pair of shoes."

"It's very rewarding to be able to help these kids and give back" to the community, McCormick said.

Walker counselor Alicia Humphrey said the shoe donation will greatly benefit some of her school's neediest students.

"It's not their fault that their circumstances are like that," Humphrey said. "A child shouldn't have to suffer if family finances are bad."

The shoes were quietly distributed from Humphrey’s office, one pair at a time, to avoid calling attention to recipients.
