Morgan’s Shoes Fits 200 Men for New Shoes

Shoe Give away and fittingHundreds of men received new shoes thanks to a generous donation from a local business.  

Morgan’s Shoes and Bootery in Gastonia distributed dozens of works boots and casual shoes to men who live at the Tryon and Statesville Avenue shelters.

The owner, Doug Morgan and seven of his associates fitted the men.  They were then able to choose from several styles in their size and also received a new pair of socks. 

Morgan placed a special order for the shoes.   He made sure to get quality boots that will keep their feet warm all winter.  “It’s not leftovers.  You want to give a gift worth giving,” Morgan said. 

One man who is searching for a job said the gift gave him encouragement to keep looking and to keep his head up.

It’s the fourth year for the shoe giveaway and Morgan plans to continue the tradition next year.
