Target demographics: children in need

Geographic areas served: United States

Programs: A grass roots organization, Shoes That Fit has only 6 employees  managing approximately 300 sponsor groups who run our program in over 1,800 schools in 45 states and the District of Columbia. Our Start-Up Kit provides the information necessary to successfully implement a Shoes That Fit program in your own community. We also provide year-round assistance and technical support to all of our volunteers. Shoes That Fit operates exclusively on private donations.

Mission:
The mission of Shoes That Fit is to provide new shoes to children in need so they can attend school in comfort and with dignity, better prepared to learn and play. We pair sponsoring groups (businesses, churches, civic organizations, etc.) with schools that have children in need. With materials we provide, school staff identifies and measures the students most in need of new shoes and the sponsor then purchases the exact item each child needs.
Results:
Over 1.3 million pairs of new shoes and other items have been donated to schoolchildren in need across the U.S. School liaisons report that children helped by our program showed improvement in attitude and behavior, social interaction and increased participation in physical activity.
