The River Fund New York — a local non-profit organization located in Richmond Hill — recently partnered with Payless ShoeSource to give away free shoes to nearly 90 underprivileged children.

More than 120 pairs of shoes were given away during the January 15 event. It was part of the Payless Gives Shoes 4 Kids initiative — a national, grass roots effort to give $1.2 million of free shoes to children of families in need.
