EAST PALO ALTO (KCBS) – Plenty of students got a welcome surprise at Cesar Chavez Academy in East Palo Alto on Thursday, as they prepare for the start of the new school year.
6th grader Elizabeth James was among the many students who opened up a hand sewn shoe bag. She found the pair of pink sneakers she had been hoping for.
“I can wear them for school and I don’t have to buy other ones,” she said. “They’re cute, I like them.”
