Several local organizations are taking it upon themselves to put shoes on the feet of as many Lufkin area kids as they can.  Shoe Carnival, Kicks105, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Deep East Texas are making sure children will have a new pair of shoes by the end of the summer.

Through Kicks For Kids, individuals, businesses and organizations are asked to make donations or buy athletic shoes that will be given to kids at the Deep East Texas Boys and Girls Club locations in Lufkin, San Augustine, Jasper, Crockett and Nacogdoches.

Shoe Carnival official Michele Phillips says there are a lot of children in this area whose parents can't afford to buy new shoes. So Kicks For Kids will be holding bake sales and other fundraisers to help the Boys and Girls Clubs get shoes for the kids.

To donate cash or buy a pair of shoes for Kicks For Kids, visit Shoe Carnival in Lufkin, or any Deep East Texas Boys and Girls Club location and ask about Kicks For Kids.
