EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Aaron Jones’ Yards for Shoes campaign kicked off its fourth consecutive season by hosting a Saturday afternoon event, Sept. 2 in Winsupply: Sun City Winnelson Branch located at 7179 Copper Queen Dr.
Jones and his A&A All the Way Foundation surprised 50 kids at Winsupply with a Yards for Shoes t-shirt and refreshments during the event, according to a press release by Capture Sports Marketing.
