Free new boots and shoes for kids

LOCK HAVEN — Free new boots are waiting for eligible children and teens. Kids can pick out boots this Saturday, Nov. 16, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Lock Haven Area Shoe Bank.

A limited supply of boots will be available, starting this month. As always, free new shoes will be available too.

Kids may come for new boots even if this is not their scheduled month to return for new shoes.

Eligible kids who have not visited before are welcome, too.

The Shoe Bank is open once a month and is inside Covenant United Methodist Church, 44 W. Main St. (across and just up the street from the Lock Haven post office).

Shoes are available for wee ones through 17-year-olds. Kids are invited to choose the pair they like the best in their size. Most of the shoes are sneakers, and many are popular name brands. A selection is available in many sizes, including big teen sizes, for both boys and girls.

The free new shoes come with a free new pair of socks. Kids are also encouraged to choose a free book or two of their very own.

They must be accompanied by an adult and have their Access card, CHIP card, or similar type of insurance card. A referral from the Red Cross or another agency also makes them eligible.

The Shoe Bank is usually open the third Saturday of each month from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., inside Covenant Church. In December, it will be open on the second Saturday, which is Dec. 14.

The Shoe Bank serves families throughout Clinton County, plus the Liberty-Curtin Elementary School area.
