Christmas stockings—and shoes to go with them

FPU and Spirit 88.9 FM are again giving a free pair of shoes and socks to every child at two area elementary schools.

Students at Washington Elementary in Visalia got their shoes December 12, and students at Muir Elementary, Fresno, get theirs December 19. Staff members from the main campus, North Fresno Center and Visalia Center are helping, along with community members.

Soled Out started in 2010 as an outgrowth of TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie’s presentation at the FPU Business Forum. Spirit 88.9 Christian radio has been co-sponsor from the beginning. (Pictured, volunteers process shoes December 7 in Ashley Auditorium.)

Volunteers and donations are still welcome. Contribute at and volunteer at . For more, call Joan Minasian at 559-453-2028.
