For the last six years, the Dallas, Texas, Northwest Division Neighborhood Police Officer Unit has provided shoes to hundreds of children before the school year starts through its “Share the Shoes” program, according to the group’s website.
They were at it again this year, providing sneakers for toddlers, kids and teens thanks to donations from their corporate partners, Energy Transfer and Sunoco LP.
“If a child is in need of shoes, the ‘Share the Shoes’ program allows the officer to lace up a new pair for the child to run and play in,” the Dallas Police Department noted on its website.
“Both Energy Transfer and Sunoco LP have longstanding commitments to strengthen local communities,” Vicki Granado, vice president of communications for Energy Transfer, told Fox News Digital in an emailed message.
“Having the opportunity to work with the Dallas Police Department on this campaign that is specific to helping kids in West Dallas shows how local involvement can have a positive impact on a community,” she added.
The partnership is six years strong. It began back in 2017, when police officers in the Northwest Dallas community noticed that children didn’t have proper footwear.
