The City of San Marcos Police Department (SMPD) is joining forces with Hays Cares Shoes of Hope on Saturday, Aug. 3 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lehman High School at 1700 Lehman Road in Kyle, to help provide over 200 Hays County students with shoes as they return to school.

This free community event is hosted by the Kiwanis Club Kyle/Buda, Word of Life Christian Faith Center, and Unforgettable Families and Friends, Inc. in partnership with the Samaritan’s Feet International non-profit organization. SMPD will serve barbecue to attendees and volunteers.

“Shoes are an essential need for children attending school, and unfortunately many parents struggle to afford new shoes in Hays County,” said Chief Chase Stapp. “This event is about reminding these families and children that the community is here to help them succeed.”

The deadline for reserving shoes was July 14, however, the organizers will have a limited supply of extra shoes available for early registrants. For more information, visit
