Volunteers gave students at an Arlington school new shoes and socks.

Some kind-hearted souls helped more than 550 students at Arlington’s Morton Elementary walk away from school with a brand new pair of shoes and socks.

The gift came from the social service group, Samaritan’s Feet.

Samaritan’s Feet is a global nonprofit organization founded in 2003 that aims to share hope with children in need by giving them a new pair of shoes. They also want to helping children believe their dreams can come true, according to a press release from the Arlington school district.

While the gifts brought smiles to the youngsters, they didn’t come as a complete surprise. Students had to fill out permission slips and get sizes, so they could get the right shoes. Volunteers from several area businesses helped distribute the shoes.

All the students at an Arlington school received shoes from a local charity.
