Seeing the smiles and hearing a heart-felt thank you is what this is all about.
Lubbock, TX (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Walk With Pride is an annual event hosted by the Lubbock Association of REALTORS. During the month of September, the agents measure and fit the children who were eligible to receive a pair of shoes. These children were selected by the South Plains Food Bank, which gave vouchers to families in need. They get to go home with a pair of shoes and socks at no charge to them.
Walk With Pride is named this due to the fact that this will be the only pair of new shoes a lot of these children get. It is a great joy to serve our community by providing new shoes and socks for those whose families may be limited on income or other situations. Seeing the smiles and hearing a heart-felt thank you is what this is all about.
Nancy Rawls, president of the Lubbock Association of Realtors, said “ It is great to team up with South Plains Food Bank and Payless Shoes for this event.”
RE/MAX Lubbock was proud of their many agents that volunteered to help with this successful event. It’s because of the hard work of the agents in our community that we could provide 372 pairs of shoes and 111 pairs of socks. We’ll also be handing out ballet shoes at Hutchinson Junior High.
