Students at Charles W. Fairbanks School 105 received some holiday goodies today during a special event with LIDS, Journeys and the Indianapolis Colts.

In its tenth year, the “Cold Feet, Warm Shoes and Hats” event has provided new shoes and winter clothing to over 3,000 students across Indianapolis.

Today each student at Charles W. Fairbanks was personally fitted for a brand new pair of shoes and also received a new hat, socks and a Colts goodie bag!

Students were also able to meet several Colts players including inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman.

“I am so excited to have the Lids, Journeys, Genesco and Colts communities supporting our students by providing them with necessities that we often take for granted,” said Principal Paula Peterson. “It was truly an awesome experience for all involved.”

Student ambassadors also expressed their thanks for the new winter gear at the beginning of the event.

“We appreciate you supporting us and providing shoes for some who may not be able to afford them,” said Kejuan M. “This makes me and other students happy. On behalf of all of the Charles Fairbanks Elementary students I want to say thank you and let you know that we love you.”

We love our community partners, too! We’re proud to live in a community that supports our students in so many ways! Thank you Lids, Journeys, Genesco and the Colts!
