The Junior Woman’s Club of Plant City completed its 2015 Shoe Project, which provides athletic shoes to underprivileged elementary youth in the Plant City Community.
Various fundraising events allow the club to purchase over 700 pairs of shoes each year.
James Hardie stepped up to sponsor 55 youth at Bryan Elementary. It donated about $750 to purchase shoes in partnership with Payless ShoeSource in Plant City. The Payless partnership has given the buy one, get one and additional discounts to the shoe project to reach as many youth as possible.
The James Hardie donation has also inspired Railroad & Industrial Federal Credit Union bank to donate $450 to the project.
The club gave the shoes to students at Bryan Elementary Friday, Dec. 4.
