Students show off new shoes from Kiwanis

The banners held by the fourth graders prove Kiwanis is making a difference in Pasadena, Texas, USA. They read: "4th grade thanks you for the shoes."  

Every student at South Houston Elementary School received a new pair of shoes on Monday, October 23. Members of the Kiwanis Club of Pasadena helped about 600 children try on shoes and made sure there was enough room for their toes to wiggle. 

"So many of the children in this school lost everything because of Hurricane Harvey," said Brad McKenzie, president of the Kiwanis Club of Pasadena. "We are trying to do whatever we can to make sure the kids have what they need. Kids need Kiwanis here in Pasadena, and we are responding." 

Two Ten Footwear Foundation, the national charitable foundation of the U.S. footwear industry, donated the shoes, in addition to socks and clothing, for Kiwanis clubs to distribute. 

“We are humbled and grateful for the support that our industry has shown to those who have been impacted by this devastating hurricane,” said Neal Newman, President of Two Ten Footwear Foundation. "The need is great and we are doing all we can to make sure we provide help and relief for families who are in crisis.  

"Our industry is close and compassionate, and this is another example of the incredible strength of the footwear community.”
