WARSAW — The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary provided a grant to provide 200 Kosciusko County students in grades kindergarten through 12 with shoes to go back to school.
Vouchers were recently distributed to families in need to give new shoes, socks and other items in cooperation with Shoe Sensation, 2884 Frontage Road, Warsaw.
“This outreach has been going on for many years,” said Envoy Sina Locke, administrator. “Requests are still coming in, so we welcome any further donations for this project.”
Low-income families struggle to ensure their children have everything they need for the new school year. Shoes are one of the expensive items, and everyone has been very grateful for the help, according to Locke.
Donations may be sent to The Salvation Army, 501 E. Arthur St., Warsaw, IN 46580-3003 to help more families. Place “Shoes” in the memo line. For more information, go to sawarsaw.org.
