Mid-Cities Schools Credit Union, Compton, Calif., donated 200 pairs of shoes to St. Bernard Unified School, Chalmette, La., for children who lost their belongings when Hurricane Katrina hit last summer. Teachers from the school will hand out the boxes to children in need. Each box contains a pair of shoes, a t-shirt and a note from the CU.
