80040382_10157691957559223_4326102476001378304_oThis holiday season we supported Shoelady.org  (with the help of Rebekah Brewster and Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg) in providing shoes for children in need all over Hampton Roads.

The Shoe Lady Organization started in 2013 when a young boy went to the home of Melissa and Bill Hoffman to play with their son. He arrived in the pouring, freezing rain on a November afternoon barefoot carrying his shoes. When asked why he wasn’t wearing them he said that they were his grandmother’s and they didn’t fit. At that point Melissa started the non profit to find shoes for all children in need. In 2016 Melissa passed away and Bill valiantly picked up her torch. You can help by donating at www.shoelady.org.
