To most it may not seem like much- owning a pair of shoes; after all it is one of the most basic of items that people own. But when school opens the reality is that many children find it very difficult to get a new pair of shoes and that is where Senator Macario Coy has stepped in for some of the children in Big Falls and Barranco in the Toledo district.

Senator Coy launched a shoe drive and on Wednesday August 30 he delivered 175 pairs of shoes to students of Big Falls RC & Barranco RC School in Toledo. The drive was successful thanks to coordinators Felicita Reyes, Mike Westby, Whitney Garbutt and Raquel Rodriguez. Donations were made through the support from Deputy Prime Minister Hon. Patrick Faber, Hon. Erwin Contreras, and Hon. Tracy Panton through Sen. Macario Coy and Big Falls Village Councils. Senator Coy expresses further thanks to other sponsors such as: BEL, Tropic Air, Shoemania, Dibary, Belize Bank, Florence Dawson, R&B Development Company, Sweet Tooth Cakes, PETAL and Councilor Benards Pitts Jr and many others that contributed to Big Falls RC and Barranco RC School SHOE DRIVE.
