Homeless Kimbrough, Crawford, Henry, New Dawn and Storefront Youth Shelter Students Get Shoes

Homeless students from Kimbrough Elementary School, Crawford and Patrick Henry high schools, New Dawn School and residents of Storefront Youth Shelter shopped for new shoes thanks to a generous donation from Gaylord Hansen Mortgage Group, a San Diego branch of Gateway Funding. The 103 students picked out more than $2,300 in shoes.

Gaylord Hansen employees were joined by district staff to help students in selecting the right pair of shoes at Payless Shoe Source in Point Loma on Oct. 11. Students also received socks, snacks, and a t-shirt.
