OKLAHOMA  – Each of us has a gift we can use to help others.

John Price found his after a 45-year career in the shoe industry.

He used his knowledge and contacts to start a shoe mission, one that has provided over 30,000 pair of shoes to Oklahoma kids – free of charge.

“The kids go bananas,” Price said. “They love it.”

And, that’s why Chris Jones nominated Price for Pay it 4Ward.

“All the things he learned in the shoe business about how to buy in bulk and make good deals allowed him to use those talents in retirement to provide shoes for kids in need,” Jones said.
