Conway Church Donates Shoes To Elementary School

A Conway church has given local kids in need new shoes for school.

Yesterday dozens of boxes were brought to Marguerite Vann Elementary School. The New Generation Church collected a little more than $5,000 dollars to purchase the shoes.

Each pair went to a student that school staff noticed was in need of some new shoes.

The school measured each students foot to make sure the shoes were a perfect match. Many kids either had shoes too big, too small, or had holes in them.

For years the church has given away free backpacks before the school year but this year they wanted to do something different.
