MONROE – First Presbyterian Church in Monroe gave a new pair of shoes and two pairs of socks to 50 students each from East and Walter Bickett elementary schools.
The events took place on Dec. 4 and 5 at Monroe Crossing Mall. Children were able to sit on Santa’s lap courtesy of the mall.
Belk associates fitted the shoes. The children also enjoyed a snack donated by Chick-fil-A.
This is the 13th year the church provided children with shoes at Christmas.
