07 Dec Colts for the win: Players work with LIDS to fit kids with new shoes, hats, gloves
The tiny humans’ eyes grew wide as they walked into the gymnasium to the roar of applause and cheers.
These little pre-kindergarten kids at IPS #63 didn’t know what to make of the fanfare that accompanied their entrance. But they were in for a treat.
Principal Paul Wirth watched with a smile as the youngest of his students wrapped their arms around Colts mascot Blue. Then community partners LIDS Sports Group, Journeys and the Colts did their best to wrap their arms around the 500 children at a school where poverty is a fact of life.
