Laces for Leander

The 4th Annual Laces for Leander event is held just before school starts so that students have the opportunity to go to the first day of school with a brand new pair of shoes. Similar to Coats for Kids, Laces is set up like a shopping area where kids get to select, try on and walk out with a brand new pair of athletic shoes. HCCM also works with the school counselors helping students who may be failing P.E. because they do not have the proper shoes to wear. HCCM gets to provide new shoes to those in need with the help of our community.

This year our event was held on Saturday, August 5. Due to the generous donations of our community, we were able to provide shoes for over 600 LISD students. Thank you for your support!
