Area students receive new shoes through LANL Laces program
ESPAÑOLA —Students from Fairview Elementary took a “field trip” recently – to the Shoe Department in Española to get a new pair of shoes thanks to LANL Laces, Los Alamos National Laboratory’s shoe program for elementary students.
The children were just a few of the many students throughout the region receiving support from the LANL Laces program, receiving a new pair of shoes to finish out the school year.
Funding for LANL Laces comes from fundraising activities and donations by Laboratory employees, along with a monetary donation from Cray Computer Inc., a Lab business partner.
More than 160 gift cards from the Shoe Department and Payless shoes were given to school districts across the seven counties that the Laboratory supports in its community giving efforts.
