Sadly, there are many children in New Mexico who are living in poverty, with a lot of their basic needs being neglected.
So much so in fact, that many have never even owned a pair of new shoes. That’s where the annual KRQE Cares Shoes for Kids Campaign steps in to help.
KRQE Cares Shoes for Kids serves 8 to 9 elementary schools a year by taking a day to put brand new shoes on every child in the school. The average school size is over 400 students.
There will be a phone bank Thursday, March 14 from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Watch KRQE for the number to call and donate.
