Youth leads effort to replenish Barringer Sneaker Snag

Age is never a measure of the ability to impact the lives of others. Recently, 17-year-old Matthew Servello recently delivered carts filled with new sneakers to replenish Barringer Road’s Sneaker Snag supply. Now in its third year, Sneaker Snag has provided new and gently used sneakers to students in need. Matthew is the founder of “Soles for Christ” and a former CVA student. He now attends Whitesboro High School.

“With most of our sneakers ‘snagged,’ our supply was running low,” said Barringer third grade teacher Sherri Spina.

“We are so grateful for this generous donation and for Matthew’s vision and hard work. He is a great role model and inspiration to all.”
