EULESS (CBSDFW.COM) – After enduring the trauma of a school lockdown when a police officer in the area was shot and killed on March 1, there was some good news today for some students in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District.
Skechers and Belk teamed up to convert Oakwood Terrace Elementary in Euless into a “pop-up shoe shop.” The businesses joined together and donated more than 800 pairs of shoes to students.
Youngsters anxiously stood in line and waited to have their feet measured. The next step was to not only pick out their new shoes, but also personalize them at a one-of-a-kind decorating station.
Euless ISD administrators were on hand to witness the happy event and help students get the perfect fit.
The Bobs from Skechers program launched in 2011, and since then has donated more than 13 million pairs of new shoes to children in need.
