(MCALLEN, TX – February 22, 2019) –– Security Service Charitable Foundation has presented In His Steps with a $10,000 donation to be used to purchase 400 pairs of shoes for children in need.

“Something as simple as a pair of shoes can improve a child’s success and the quality of life,” said Susan Hellums, shoe bank coordinator for In His Steps. “Because of Security Service’s donation, 400 children will now receive new shoes allowing them to walk more comfortably, participate in physical activities and engage with their peers.”

In His Steps began in 1996 at the request of the State Health and Human Services Department who noticed many children did not have shoes or had severely worn shoes with holes. Today, In His Steps provides 300-500 pairs of shoes annually.

“This donation is more than a pair of shoes,” said Julie Balboa, vice president of member service – South Texas for Security Service Federal Credit Union. “The shoes these children will receive will give them the confidence they need to be successful and achieve their dreams.”

In His Steps works collaboratively with school counselors who refer the children in need.  The program serves all 30 schools within the McAllen school district.

The Security Service Charitable Foundation helps further Security Service Federal Credit Union’s corporate goal of community service by contributing to deserving organizations and causes in the credit union's market areas.
