They gave out free shoes to any kids who needs them, from toddler to adult sizes. UMADAOP says they are always trying to reach the needs of the community to build successful families.

Myrtle Boykin-Lighton, the CEO of Lima UMADAOP says, “We always just want to do whatever we can to make families successful, any barriers when kids are going back to school so having shoes, having bookbags, just helping parents to help their children be successful.”
