Morris church gives away 215 pairs of shoes

Friends in Christ Lutheran Church in Morris, with the cooperation of We Care and Operation St. Nick recently conducted its eighth annual shoe giveaway.

The  Keeping Your Kids in Shoes program over the past eight years has given shoes to children in grades kindergarten through 12 in Grundy County each year before school starts.

In August, it gave away 215 pairs of shoes. All shoes were brand names purchased by donations to Friends in Christ and distributed to qualifying families.

This has been a very successful outreach to the communities, which the church plans to continue each year.
