IDC presents 5th Annual Steps for Success

Posted: Friday, July 25, 2014

The Indiana Dream Center will host Steps for Success, which is an event providing shoes and socks for children going back to school. The activity will take place on Saturday, August 9 at Drover Park/Splash Pad on Etna Avenue.

Steps for Success began in 2010 in conjunction with back to school time. Each year students and their families have many required items to purchase to prepare for school including a new pair of tennis shoes for physical education class. The Indiana Dream Center is helping students from kindergarten through high school prepare for school by providing new shoes and socks at the annual Steps for Success event.

The event has grown since its beginnings and last year over 500 children were served. The Indiana Dream Center anticipates an even bigger need within the community this year with a goal of providing over 700 children with shoes. Children must be present at the event to receive the items.

Monetary donations are welcomed and accepted at The Awakening Community Church by mailing a check to P.O. Box 611, Huntington, IN 46750 or by visiting their website at; the Dream Center Thrift store located in downtown Huntington or the Dream Center office at 1312 Flaxmill Road.
