RACINE — With the school year just over a month away, the Meigs Cooperative Parish is preparing to help children in need of shoes for “back to school.”
Students in Meigs, Southern and Eastern school districts were eligible to sign up for a program which provides gift cards for the purchase of shoes to kids in need.
Don Shaffer from the Cooperative Parish said that the gift cards will be given to those who have already signed up on July 28. Gift cards can be used toward the purchase of shoes at Shoe Show.
Home National Bank of Racine and Syracuse recently presented Shaffer with a $500 donation toward the program.
In addition to the donation for the shoe program, Shaffer noted that the bank had donated food from recent food drives to the Cooperative Parrish.
