The program has been going on for over 25 years and is available to all children ages 4 through 12 years of age, the kids must be enrolled in head-start thru the 5th grade. Here’s how to apply.

Anyone can apply for the shoes no matter what the family income is, but one must produce a valid social security card for that student . There is a limit of one pair of shoes and one pair of socks per student. You can pick up an application at the Salvation Army located at 1726 Butternut in Abilene, they’re open until 10 p.m. weekdays.
