Minute for Mission: Shoes That Fit

This year, 1,200 students in Flint, Michigan will be fitted with shoes, socks, a hat, and gloves.  Up from 68 pairs of shoes the first year, Quota International of Flint is again sponsoring the program through the national nonprofit Shoes That Fit with partners Genesys, Hurley, and McLaren hospitals.
