A Wilmington student makes a difference one pair of shoes at a time.

For three years, Gunner Robinson asked for ‘shoes’ instead of personal gifts for his August birthday.  Every pair of shoes he’s collected goes back to other children in his community who need them for back-to-school.

Gunner, whose birthday is August 15, has already donated nearly 600 pairs, and he isn’t stopping. This past Saturday, he bought 30 new pairs thanks to a donation from a high school reunion in the area.

“I’ve like (getting) new shoes for school), and I want other kids to get them too,” Gunner said.
His parents couldn’t be more proud.  “Words can’t even describe how proud we are of him because it was his idea, his doings,” Kristi Robinson said.
For Gunner, it’s not about the recognition. He just “loves helping others…”
