The Grand Prairie Police Department is set to kick off its 4th Annual Blue Shoes Program, a compassionate initiative that aims to provide children in the Grand Prairie Independent School District with new shoes and socks. The program's primary objective is to boost the confidence and pride of as many children as possible, ensuring they have the essentials needed to face the school year with enthusiasm.
The event is scheduled for Wednesday, November 1, 2023, running from 9 am to 12 pm at Bowie Elementary School, located at 425 Alice Drive in Grand Prairie, Texas. It promises to be a heartwarming occasion where officers will distribute new shoes and socks to the eager young recipients.
According to the GPPD Blue Shoes Program poster, their efforts have a substantial impact, as 40% of children who receive new shoes experience improved school attendance rates.
