The North Coastal Prevention & Early Intervention team jumped at the wonderful opportunity to partner with St. James Mission Circle and Shoes to the World to bring brand new shoes to every single child at two elementary schools in Oceanside.
In total, 1,200 students from Transitional Kindergarten to 5th grade received awesome new shoes! Students were able to choose their color and even received new socks! The smiles on the kids’ faces tells the whole story and it was worth every minute of coordination.
As one student wrote in a thank you note, “I love them, I will wear them every day…my shoes are pink (and) I love pink!” Thank you members of St. James Mission Circle and Clara Marsden at Shoes to the World – you truly made a difference for these students.
