KRQE Cares Continues to Help Local Students with Shoes

FOX New Mexico

Our KRQE Cares Shoes for Kids drive is making sure they have new shoes on their feet. The Assistance League and Payless Shoes are joining our campaign to make this happen.

“The Albuquerque area has so many children in need and schools that desperately need some assistance,” says Mary Kenney of the Assistance League of Albuquerque. “It is something that we’re focused on, to make sure that we bring this event to the kids that are most needy in our community.”

Thanks to many generous donations, about 10,000 pairs of shoes have been distributed across 22 schools since 2015.
