Hooksett birthday boy, 8, gives a gift that's good for the sole
"I was just thinking of the children who needed shoes," Wolcott said when he stopped by Salvation Army headquarters on Cedar Street to drop off the shoes.
Wolcott's own feet were clad in a pair of thick-soled, colorful flip-flops, one of only three pairs he calls his own. The others are sneakers and slippers.
Wolcott arrived with his parents — Carl, a restaurant manager, and Anita, an office manager. He beamed over the attention, and bounced from chair to his mother's lap, stealing a kiss on occasion.
"With him being 7 years old, you would think he would change his mind between the time he said it and his birthday, but it was always that," his father said. His birthday was Monday.
Wolcott said he could have asked gift-givers for clothes, but foot pain seemed to be a factor in his decision to ask for shoes.
