Christmas came early for 2,000 kids thanks to FPU and community partners.
All students at Lawless School in Fresno, Highland Elementary in Visalia and Beardsley and Standard Elementary schools in Bakersfield received a pair of shoes and socks through Soled Out for Kids, organized by FPU and 88.9 Spirit radio. Site sponsors were Olive Knolls Church of the Nazarene, Bakersfield; Every Neighborhood Partnership, Bakersfield; Northpointe Community Church, Fresno; and Radiant Church, Visalia.
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.
