The numbers don't lie: One in five schoolchildren in our area live below the poverty line and need our help to get something as basic as shoes.
NewsChannel 5 has collaborated with In Jacob’s Shoes® as our Non-Profit Partner. The mission of In Jacob’s Shoes® is to provide new and gently used shoes, school supplies and athletic equipment to children in need. Grants & Scholarships are also awarded for camp, sports and enrichment programs. Check out In Jacob’s Shoes® on the web!
