Goodwill Industries, in partnership with Sears, Roebuck & Co. and Montgomery Ward, is providing gift certificates for new shoes to 1,800 children in its "Shoes for School" program.

The program provides shoes for active school wear to children in 250 elementary schools throughout the central Maryland area.

Tax deductible contributions to help Goodwill provide shoes should be sent to Shoes for School, P.O. Box 2907, Baltimore, MD 21229.

The gifts will also help Goodwill to provide vocational rehabilitation services and employment programs for disabled and disadvantaged adults.

Howard Community College trustees approved a $30 million master plan last week to cover development of the college through the year 2000.

The plan calls for two new classroom buildings to accommodate additional programs and projected increases in enrollment.

The school currently has the equivalent of 2,050 full-time students, but expects that number to rise to 3,188 by the end of the decade.

The master plan also includes a day-care center, cultural arts building, expanded parking space and renovations of the learning resource center, campus theater and physical education building.

Some of the projects are already under design or have been submitted to the county government for financing approval.

Architects are designing plans to add 200 spaces to the student parking lot and relocate the faculty lot to create a plaza in front of the administration building.

A request for $1.2 million for planning and construction of one new classroom building is part of HCC's 1991-1992 capital budget proposal.

The addition of a second classroom building and cultural arts center would create a "campus gateway" by the end of the decade, with the present faculty parking lot serving as a central plaza surrounded on three sides by buildings, said John J. Di Menna of Rubeling and Associates, architects for the master plan.
