Thanks for Retuning!

GREENWOOD, Miss. – It was a slam-dunk of a good deed. Jeffrey Nickson said he heard two men scheming to shoplift some sports shoes from a local store and told them they didn’t need to steal. He went home, took two pairs of Air Jordans from his own collection of 25 pairs and gave the shoes to the men.

Nickson told The Greenwood Commonwealth that he then started thinking about how other people need shoes. So he went to the Salvation Army and donated 20 pairs of mint-condition size 14 Air Jordans that he said were valued between $125 and $200 a set.

Nickson works for an electronics firm in the Delta. He collected the shoes for years, keeping them clean and in their original boxes.
