ADOPT A FOOT: Adopt a Foot, the Lakeview Outreach and Fellowship program to provide new shoes for students in grades kindergarten to eighth in area schools, has kicked off its annual request for donations. LOAF is able to get each student on the list a pair of shoes at $30 from local shoe companies. Since the 1980s, the Adopt a Foot has provided 100 pairs of shoes each tear to students in Maplewood, Lakeview, Mathews, Badger, Bristol and Champion schools. Students are selected by teachers, guidance counselors, school nurses and other personnel. Adopt a Foot was initially begun by Prince of Peace Lutheran Church but was only able to assist a few children. As other LOAF churches, Salvation Army and community members got involved more donations were given. Donations are needed by the end of November and can be sent to Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 490 N. High St., Cortland, Indicate the gift is for shoes.
