Tape and Shoes
Last winter a teacher called our office and requested funds to buy shoes for her student.
He would stop by her room each morning before going to his first class and borrow her tape to wrap around his shoe and sole to hold them together for the rest of the day.
Since he lived in a part of Idaho where there was a lot of snow, his feet were already wet when he arrived at school.
When the teacher asked him his shoe size, he replied that he didn’t know since he had never had a new pair of shoes.
The ones he was wearing were hand-me-downs.
After getting our check, the teacher took him shopping for new shoes and socks.
Within a short time other teachers in the school noticed his attitude was improved.
He was smiling, and he was no longer sick and sneezing.
