HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) — The Salvation Army held its annual Shoe Strut on Friday at the Hershey Lodge.
The event raises money to get new shoes for children in need. For every guest, the organization donated a pair of shoes to local kids.
“We actually started this event because we saw a need at the Salvation Army with kids who wouldn’t go to school because they didn’t have appropriate footwear and we didn’t have a way to facilitate that need, so this event makes it possible to provide more than 600 kids with shoes thanks to our partnership with Boscovs,” Kathy Anderson-Martin of the Salvation Army said.
