Yet again, 2020 looked different for us because of the changes created in response to the pandemic. Again, we adapted and we delivered 208 pairs of shoes to 5 area schools.
2019 looked different for us because of last minute policy changes in our sponsored schools. We adapted and provided two elementary schools with 386 pairs of shoes.
Our children at our two sponsored elementary schools were so excited to see us again! This year we gifted 1,264 pairs of shoes!
We expanded and sponsored two elementary schools with 1,192 pairs of shoes. So many feet!!
We sponsored our first elementary school with 505 pairs of shoes! What an unforgettable day.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you! We couldn't accomplish our goals without you!
