Tribune photo by Aaron Piper/ Meghan Turner, 11, of Brownstown and her mother's fiance, Phil Nale take shoes to the Anchor House in Seymour on Friday. Turner requested family and friends donate shoes for Anchor House in lieu of presents for her birthday.
An 11-year-old girl from Brownstown Elementary School wanted only one thing for her birthday: new shoes.
But unlike some girls her age, Meghan Turner didn’t want to keep the shoes she received. She wanted to give the shoes to those in need.
So on Friday morning, wearing pink boots and a smile showing her braces, the fifth-grader walked into Anchor House Family Assistance Center in Seymour holding a box containing 22 pairs of new shoes donated by friends and family.
