First Bank & Trust, Payless team up to donate shoes to students

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - For more than 10 years, First Bank and Trust in Sioux Falls has donated shoes to students at Horace Mann Elementary.

On Thursday, employees at Payless Shoes visited the school to measure all the kids' feet for their new kicks.

But the donation has expanded beyond just Horace Mann elementary.

"We've just continued to build on it," Rebecca Stone with Payless said. "First it was just like a couple schools, like you said they were just wanting to throw some money in and get some kids some new shoes, but it has grown much, much bigger, and this year we are actually doing four schools and possibly a fifth, so it's definitely grown over the last few years."

The students will receive their new shoes around Christmas.
