A Colorado-based construction company working on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota has donated more than 400 pairs of shoes to students at a local school.

The Rapid City Journal reports that Arvada-based Milender White Construction Co. and its subcontractors donated 435 wrapped boxes of shoes to students at Pine Ridge Elementary.

Milender White is overseeing construction of the $31 million Pine Ridge Justice Center going up on the southern edge of town.

Vice President Adam Mack says the gift giving is part of the company's mission to give back to the community they have been working in.

Nine-year-old Cante Long Soldier is a third-grader. She says the new pair of Nikes she received was probably the nicest pair of shoes she's ever owned.
