New York Shoe Crew
The New York Branch Updates
Fall of 2012 The New York Branch of The Shoe Crew worked in partnership with The Kinry Road School in Poughkeepsie, New York to help some of the families devastated by Hurricane Sandy. The organization chosen was the Salvation Army of Atlantic City, NJ.
Matthew gave a presentation to the Kinry School explaining what The Shoe Crew is and its mission. The children were asked to collect as many of the shoes on the list as possible. A contest was run between classes with the prize being an ice cream party for the class that collected the most shoes. In the end, 214 pairs of shoes went to some well-deserving kids in New Jersey.
Spring 2014 The New York Branch will be working with some of the schools and shelters in New York to meet their needs.
