BALTIMORE — Hundreds of Baltimore city students received new shoes on Tuesday!

Residents volunteered at a shoe distribution event at Harlem Park Elementary School on the city’s west side.

They handed out 500 pairs of new pair shoes and socks. This is part of Samaritan’s Feet National Day of Service campaign built around MLK Day.

"We've already served 2 classes today we already served a child that had on a pair of shoes that were two sizes too small because they were hand me downs. Today we know they're going to get a pair of shoes that fit them and know that they're getting a brand-new pair of shoes," said Phil Campbell, Regional Director of Samaritan’s Feet

During the campaign, Samaritan’s Feet will serve over 12,000 people in 25 cities and 15 states.
