Local church hosts shoe giveaway this weekend
If you or someone you know are in need of some new shoes at no cost, one local church is hosting a shoe giveaway this weekend.
Saturday morning from 9 a.m. until noon, the First Albany Deliverance Cathedral Church will be giving out pairs of shoes to anyone in need at 1506 Slappey Boulevard.
Members of the community are welcome to donate shoes or take a few pairs, free of charge.
If you or someone you know is interested in donating, all shoe sizes are welcomed and appreciated.
Each person will be given their choice of two to three pairs of shoes.
Event organizer, Lakaiya Camppell wanted to do something to help the community after Hurricane Irma and January's storms.
"Everyone needs shoes and after everything that has happened, I feel that shoes would be very beneficial to everyone. And also to the people who are giving the shoes because they can help clear out their closet."
