#MakeLove — Classmates Surprise Texas Student With New Shoes

Published on December 22, 2016

A group of Texas students came together to make sure that one of their own wouldn’t go without. Somerset High School student J.R. Gilbert has special needs and had been wearing size 10 shoes, even though the lanky sophomore is actually a size 13.

His classmates — at the school in the small town outside of San Antonio — decided to raise money to buy him not one but two new pairs of shoes for Christmas.

With cellphones recording all around, a large group of students brought Gilbert in to give him the presents before the holiday break. Video of the scene was posted on Facebook by the Somerset school district on Friday.
