Last day to sign up for back-to-school shoe giveaway
If your child needs a new pair of shoes for school, today was your last chance to sign up for free footwear.
State Representative Barbara Norton has sponsored a back to school shoe giveaway for the last 14 years.
She believes no child should have to worry about having the proper shoes in the classroom.
Norton and several volunteers were at County Market on hearne today signing up students.
She says, "Today is the last day for anyone to sign up, and I tell you they've been calling and calling just to make sure they have all the information that they need in order to sign up. But we wanna make sure that we're doing everything that we can do to bring this to the community."
The shoe giveaway is this Saturday from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM at Wal-Mart on Pines Rd.
The first hundred students to show up will receive a free backpack.
