  • It's a shoe-in at ALES

    On Monday, every student, teacher and staff member at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School received a new pair of shoes.
    John Lear, pastor of Freedom’s Way Assembly of God in Hodgenville, said his congregation wanted to provide outreach to help local families and children. They learned about the Rural Compassion program, a branch of Convoy of Hope, that provides new, name brand shoes to rural schools.
    The church completed the paperwork, notified administrators at ALES and a group of volunteers went to the school two days in March to take sizes for shoes.
