"Footsteps" Program Outifts Students with New Pair of Shoes

Payless.JPGFor some children, it was their first opportunity to own a new pair of shoes.  And thanks to the “Footsteps” program of the Assistance League of North Coast, 55 Mission Elementary students now have some brand new footwear to help strut their stuff!

 On Wednesday, students walked a few blocks from their campus to the local Payless ShoeSource, where ALNC volunteers eagerly awaited to assist the young shoppers.

“It’s so magical.  The students get to choose their own school shoes at no cost,” said Judy Brammer, a longtime ALNC volunteer.  “They’re so happy.  It really makes their day.  And ours.”

Students also received six pairs of socks and a health bag filled with items for person hygiene.     

The group spends about $30,000 annually on the Footsteps program, assisting OUSD, Vista and Carlsbad school districts.

Remembering the Events and Lives Lost on 9/11
