Shoe delivery


October 18, 2018

Harriet Brouillette holds up a new pair of shoes for one of many Haines School students. Chilkoot Indian Association bought the custom ordered shoes from leftover SEARHC grant funding. Staff let kids pick out their favorite pairs of shoes from an online shopping site. The tribe purchased shoes for tribal members and for children in families who might struggle to afford shoes for sporting activities. It took them all day to let about 60 students shop and pick their choice of shoes. Brouillette said if they missed anyone, to get in touch with CIA staff. Kyle Clayton photo.
