Roanoke Elementary School students received a gift of new shoes. The shoes were provided by Stonewall Resort and St. Matthew United Methodist Church. Students were treated to a visit with Santa Claus, Christmas caroling, and a movie.
St. Matthew has been part of the shoe ministry since last year. This year, the women’s group at the church, other groups, and individual members donated throughout the year to the cause. They donated $1,200 this year.
St. Matthew also participates in the backpack program for Roanoke Elementary School and Leading Creek Elementary School. Stonewall Resort hosts the event each year.
