Free shoes for Milton Elementary Students, grades K-5.

Media – School Announcement
Convoy of Hope – Rural Compassion
Milton Elementary School has been chosen to participate in a shoe distribution program call “Convoy of Hope-Rural Compassion”. A local pastor submitted the request that allows every student in grades K-5 to receive a free pair of Name Brand Shoes.
There are no strings attached to this program. The local church’s outreach is for all of the youth in the community. This means that no religious materials or information on places to worship will be distributed. The goal of the program is for the organizing pastor and church to demonstrate a genuine care for the children in Milton.
On March 25, 2016, local volunteers will be going class to class to gather the shoe size of each student. (The volunteers will only have access to the student’s first names within each class for purposes of distributing the shoes.) The shoes are gender neutral and the students will not have a choice of color.
Any parent who wishes for their child or children NOT to participate in the “Convoy of Hope-Rural Compassion” program, may contact the school administrators to have their names removed from the measurement list used to generate the shoe order.
The Name Brand Shoes distribution will be sometime after June 1, 2016. Again, there will be no materials distributed with the shoes about the local church, which organized this opportunity for Milton Elementary students.
If you have any questions or concerns or you wish to remove your child from participating in the program, please contact the principals.
