LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Volunteers handed out new shoes and socks to nearly 50 children from Dupre Elementary School today.

This is the fifth time Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls hosted this event in Lubbock. The goal of the shoe drive is to provide shoes and socks for orphaned or vulnerable children in the United States.

Staff members from KCBD were also able to help provide and pass out shoes during today's event.

"It brings joy to my heart and so much gratitude that our savior loves us so much to bless us," Amanda Rodriguez, a mother of four, said. "And he knew just the shoes that they like, their style, so. It's just amazing and all we can do is praise Him for everything he has done."

Throughout the rest of April anyone can donate shoes to Buckner for its Shoes for Orphan Souls campaign. The final drop off day is Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the First Baptist Church Lubbock, located at 2201 Broadway.
