Local resort & church hold annual shoe donation for elementary students


An entire Lewis County school is getting new shoes for Christmas.

Stonewall Resort and St. Matthew United Methodist Church held its fourth annual “Roanoke Elementary School Shoe Donation Party” Wednesday afternoon.

Every student was fitted with a brand new pair of shoes, visited with Santa and watched Christmas movies.

Stonewall employees say winter season is the perfect time to get a new pair of shoes.

“Well and that’s what we found was that during this time of year the shoes were starting to wear out,” Stephanie Wolverton. “Sure, you get a pair of shoes at the beginning of the school year so this time of year those are starting to wear out.

The students were also fitted with a brand new pair of socks before trying on their new shoes.
