Samaritan’s Feet ends NKY visits at Newport Intermediate School — nearly 2000 free shoes in all

Samaritan’s Feet, an international nonprofit, fitted more than 500 students at Newport Intermediate on Monday — with the help of an eager group of more than 100 volunteers.

It was the fourth and final stop in Northern Kentucky for Samaritan’s Feet. Shoe-fittings occurred at Newport Elementary, Bellevue Elementary and Lincoln Elementary in Dayton last week.

Samaritan’s Feet had grants from WalMart and the Calipari Foundation for work in Kentucky. Local funders were Southbank Partners, the Butler Foundation, NKyTribune, Dennis Keene and AT&T. Donations can still be made to Southbank Partners, 425 York St., Newport, KY 41071.
