Learning is Better with a Pair of Brand-new Shoes

Operation Warm to Benefit FWISD Kirkpatrick Elementary School


Pre-K- third grade students, teachers, and staff from Kirkpatrick Elementary School are starting the year off with their best foot forward, with a pair of brand-new shoes, courtesy of Operation Warm and the community.

Join us Tuesday, Jan. 25, at 8:45 a.m., in the Kirkpatrick library to witness smiles come to life as volunteers help distribute approximately 200 new shoes to Kirkpatrick’s second grade class. Extra shoes will be delivered to a nearby campus, while fourth and fifth grade students will receive free socks.

“We are elated to partner with Operation Warm. They are enabling us to provide students with a universally needed essential item that increases confidence, improves learning, and that no one can go without: shoes!” says Kirkpatrick Elementary Principal Nancy Atkinson.

Kirkpatrick Elementary was among the campuses selected by Operation Warm to receive new shoes based on the campus demographics and needs. Operation Warm is a national nonprofit that partners with the community to manufacture brand-new, high-quality coats and shoes for children in need.
