Decatur Club-50 YEARS!!! All Children Shall Have Shoes

 In General, Illinois Chapter News

2021 was the 50th year the Decatur Life Member Club has organized the All Children Shall Have Shoes event. 100 Decatur Public Schools students got a new pair of boots or shoes thanks to the AT&T Pioneers, retirees whose big annual project is to buy shoes for kids whose families might struggle to provide that necessity for them. The children also received socks, gloves and hats handmade by First Baptist Church’s Love That Looms ministry.

The AT&T iL Pioneers receive funding from the Life Member Council, donations from volunteers and received other donations to make the annual event happen, said project chairwoman Cecelia Hardnett. She was decked out in festive jingle bell earrings and necklace and clearly enjoying watching the kids pick out new shoes or boots, whichever the child wanted. Each child was able to spend up to $50 on their new shoes.

Great Job and hope the event can continue another 50 years!!
