"We've had kids come here in socks and that's all they've had."

The Back to School Shoe Drive ends this Saturday at the St. Paul Children's Foundation.

The foundation expects to provide shoes to over five hundred children and teenagers but they still need some help before it's all over.

"This stops on Saturday and we are still short 200 pairs of shoes." Executive Director, Sharlyn McGhee said.

They're asking mainly for shoes in size 11 kids up to 7 1/2 adults.

Drop off locations are spread all across Tyler and surrounding areas.

  • Chick-fil-a
  • Dairy Queen
  • McDonald's

If you are unable to purchase a pair of shoes and drop them off at one of these locations you can donate on the St. Paul Children's Foundation Website.
