Staff members also cooked food and fed more than 500 children on Wednesday.
The firefighters, along with City Safety and Security boss, JP Smith, visited the underprivileged school and handed over the shoes to deserving kids.
Raeesa Mookrey, from the Fire and Life Safety section of the unit, came up with the idea of their brand-new campaign called #warmsoles4food after she saw the need for assistance at the school.
There were smiling gesiggies all round as the pupils enjoyed lekker warm soup and bread, while chatting to firefighters about their dangerous job, and Smith helped a few of the kids put on their nuwe skoene.
“Our firefighters assist communities in more ways than just saving lives and property,” said Smith.
“The project is proof once again of how they go beyond the call of duty to protect and improve communities. I commend Raeesa for being a catalyst to change these young lives and also all her fellow firefighters who selflessly contributed to the project.”
On Sunday a firefighter from Lakeside fire station, Grant Bougaard, saved a kitten from a burning store.
Grant found the unconscious kitty at the back of the store and gave him mouth to mouth, saving its life. The dad of two said he plans to adopt the two-week-old ginger.
