This Sunday, many local kids in the Taylorville School District will receive brand new shoes or boots, and socks through Kicks for Kids. Shoe Sensation in Taylorville and the Taylorville Chapter of the Illinois Federation of Business Women is teaming up for the second straight year to help these children, but this year they want to help more. Charity Spencer, store manager of Shoe Sensation said, last year they were able to give shoes and other clothing items to 40 children. This year, their goal is 50, but hope to help much more.
Amy Hagen from the Illinois Federation of Business Women said this event also wouldn't be possible if it wasn't for the volunteers who spend hours helping these children find their new pair of shoes.
Donations can be taken to Shoe Sensation in Taylorville until, December 11th, the night of the distribution, and Kicks for Kids is always looking for more volunteers to help the children that night.
Spencer and Hagen appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
