A local church is "sizing up" hundreds of kids for an early Christmas gift with a lot of "sole."

Volunteers from NorthPointe Church were on campus at Lawless Elementary School in Northwest Fresno on Wednesday, measuring the feet of more than 600 students. The kids will each receive a free pair of shoes -- thanks to an organization called "Soles 4 Shoes."

The group provides footwear to underprivileged kids in more than one-hundred countries around the world with the help of churches and other local organizations.

NorthPointe Church members run a Saturday sports program at Lawless, so they recognized the need.
