Local organizations donate to Hays Cares ‘Shoes of Hope’
For seven years, Pastor James Jacobs has led the charge in donating shoes for the children of Hays County prior to the start of the new school year. This year’s event featured a donation of shoes and coloring books for school children, fellowship with city leaders and sausage wraps with chips. Thanks to the donations, these students will be starting the school year with new shoes.
Volunteer organizations involved with this event included Hays Latinos United, Amazon, HEB, Homes with Hall Realty, Buda Kyle Kiwais, Hays CISD, the San Marcos Fire Department, the San Marcos Police Officers Association (who cooked the sausage wraps), Unforgettable Families and Friends, 105 Publishing, Austin’s Automotive Specialist, the Citizen Police Academy-Kyle, Word of Life Church, Samaritan’s Feet, the San Marcos Police Department and Gary Job Corps Student Government Association.
