St. Matthias students braved the rainy weather Tuesday in the generous spirit of the holiday season.  The children brought in gently used shoes and ceremoniously dropped them in an over-sized shoe bin in front of an audience that included 47th Ward Alderman, Ameya Pawar, Ronald McDonald, and a representative from the St. Vincent de Paul Society.  The 4th annual shoe drive in Giddings Plaza kicks off the Lincoln Square Christkindl Market, which will take place December 2nd-4th at the corner of Lincoln and Leland.
