Some children at Carver Elementary School were among those to receive new shoes, courtesy of the 19th annual ‘Shoes For The Soul’ program.
Debra Buchanan, who represents the Horsepasture District on the Henry County Board of Supervisors and also serves as its vice chairman, started the outreach program in 2000.
The program partners with community churches and others, and recently collected 36 pairs of brand-new tennis shoes for youngsters at Carver Elementary School.
