Foster Children in Tupelo, Mississippi Kick-Off the New School Year with New-Kicks

Hannah Walker-Donelson understands the power a pair of shoes can have for students going back-to-school. She recognized some students in Tupelo don’t get to enjoy back-to-school shopping at no fault of their own and decided to help.

At only 12-years-old, Hannah called on her family and the Tupelo community to help to provide 50 foster care children the opportunity to start school with shoes that fit and boost their confidence. Shoe Carnival of Tupelo and other non-profits stepped up in a big way.

Hannah is a kid on a mission to bring awareness to bullying and create a space for the homeless and families in Tupelo, Mississippi.
