BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - There's nothing like getting a new pair
of shoes on a cold day as Christmas nears.
That's what happened Saturday for members of needy families in
Birmingham as the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity gave away more than 70
pairs of shoes at a shoe store in Birmingham's Five Points West
The shoes were provided by the Phi Beta Sigma fraternity. It has
chapters at UAB and at Miles College.
Deeatra Johnson was able to get shoes for her two daughters. She
called the shoes "a blessing" and said the footwear would help
the family with Christmas.
The fraternity has been doing an annual shoe giveaway in
Birmingham since 1948.
