School-age children from five Fort Dodge elementary schools will benefit this year from the annual Shoes That Fit campaign.
The nonprofit community outreach program is led by Mediacom, along with business partners McGregor Furniture, Jim's Carpet One and La'James International College. Donations of new shoes, boots, coats or other clothing go to children whose needs have been confidentially assessed.
Business sponsors provide locations where Shoes That Fit donation cards can be picked up. Donor cards describe the needed items, the child's gender and size. Only unwrapped new shoes and clothing is accepted.
The program is under way now through Dec. 1.
