Shaquille O’Neal Donates 500 Pairs of Shoes to Georgia Elementary School Students

Former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal has shown his kind heart once again giving back. O’Neal donated  500 new pairs of shoes to children in Georgia. Soles4Souls and Reebok, the Shaquille O’Neal Foundation  are working together in an effort to provide shoes for students in need.

Shaq visited Wesley Lakes Elementary School in Henry County to give the shoes to the children.

“It’s all about the kids,” O’Neal told Fox 5 Atlanta. “The two things that really hurt me this year were seeing 40 million people out of work, and I hate seeing kids who don’t have what they need.”

This coming summer there will be more shoes giving out. Before this project, O’Neal gave back by providing gifts to children through a toy drive last Christmas and supporting high school athletes and athletic programs affected by the pandemic.
