Every Student at Franklin Elementary School Received Free Sneakers

Dick’s Sporting Goods is once again providing a brand new pair of sneakers to children in the Syracuse City School District.  Today, Tuesday, March 16th, more than 600 students at Franklin Elementary School received a free pair of sneakers courtesy of Dick’s Sporting Goods. The athletic company previously donated a pair of sneakers to each student at Roberts Pre-K-8 School in December 2020.

During this challenging school year, their donation provides something special for our students to look forward to.”
