Jimmy’s trip was bittersweet. “I brought 120 pairs for 120 kids,” said Jimmy, who works for Anoka Middle School. “But, as you realize, every kid in the neighborhood follows a car that is arriving. I wished I’d had more pairs of shoes. We had to turn kids away. It was sad.”

Both father and son are optimistic that a happy surprise is ahead for them, too.

“Four hundred pairs are really nothing to someone who wants to help,” Nyembwe said. “I’m expecting someone to say, ‘Give me those shoes. Tell me where you want them to go.’  ”
