McKinney-Vento’s Annual ‘Step Into Spring’ Program will Pair Nearly 300 Pairs

WHAT: Carson City School District’s McKinney-Vento Students in Transition ‘Step Into Spring’ program will provide 275 pairs of new shoes to pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade students in transition. Students in Transition are those individuals who lack a fixed, regular and adequate nighttime residence.

Ten schools will send representatives to collect shoes for students in need. The event is made possible each year by generous donations from community supporters including Harley Davidson Financial Services and St. Paul's Lutheran Family. Big 5 Sporting Goods provides the shoes for these students every year at a generous discount.

WHEN: Wednesday, April 24, 2019, 10:30 to 11 a.m.
