Shoes For Kids 2022 – July 30 from 9 AM-2 PM
Shoes for Kids is a Christian based community program that has provided eligible students from Rockwall County with new school shoes, socks, dental hygiene supplies, school supplies and free immunization vaccines for the past 18 years. We have grown from 170 children served in our fist year to over 900 children in 2017 and 2018. Last year we served over 1000 children.
Eligible students are identified through Rockwall ISD and Royse City ISD School Lunch Programs and are given vouchers for one pair of shoes.
Partnering with area churches and civic organizations, and with the help of many volunteers, the shoes are distributed at First United Methodist Church of Rockwall on July 30, 2022.
With your help, many children will be able to go back to school wearing a new pair of shoes . . . for some, their first new pair of shoes ever!
“When you have done it unto the least of these, my brethren, you have done it unto me.” Matthew 25:40
