400 children will be wearing brand new shoes this Christmas.

Rescue House church surprised a Mocksville, North Carolina school with a U-Haul truck full of free shoes.

The surprise was part of the church’s end of the year service project.

“It’s been on our hearts to do something for the children of Davie County and so we decided to do a shoe giveaway,” Pastor Julie Miller told WFMY News 2.

The church negotiated with Under Armour to buy $22,000 worth of shoes for just $12,000.

They said they chose to bless William R. Davie Elementary school because there was a need and they had to fill it.

“It’s near and dear to our hearts here in our community. We have some school teachers there that attend our church and they brought to our attention that there are some physical needs…we saw a need and we have to fill it,” Miller said.
