CONWAY, Ark. (KATV) -- University of Central Arkansas athletes and staff teamed up with Aramark to hand out some soles to local kids Sunday.

Through "The Samaritan's Feet," a non-profit organization, they matched 500 pairs of athletic shoes to district kids.

Before the each child was fitted with the perfect pair of shoes, volunteers washed their feet, a symbolic way to share a message of hope and caring.

"It's just good to have that impact," said student athlete Layne Sargeson. "It's goods for kids to know that they are special and that they are individuals that people are interested in giving the time and giving a pair of shoes to. Some kids, I mean, they don't really get that. They don't really get to see people with God's heart after them."

Leading up to Sunday's event, UCA hosted a "Barefoot Game," where they helped raise funds for The Samaritan's Feet organization.
