Big shoe drive in Lufkin

Buckner International is working hard to make sure every student in Angelina County can go back to school with a new pair of shoes.

The shoes will be handed out at the annual Back to School Bonanza on August 1.

They hope you will help them collect 1,800 pairs of new youth-sized shoes. Those shoes will be sent to children in Angelina County.

The drive will last through June 26, with multiple drop off locations throughout Lufkin. To find out how to donate or to become a drop off site, you can contact Holly Valentine at 936-637-3300.
