Programs: What makes the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation different? Our programming is based on teh premise that we don't just provide a child in need witha new pair of shoes. Rather, we measure their feet on -site to ensure proper fit. We pair them one-on-one with a community volunteer whom takes a special interest and walks them throguht the process. We make them the center of attention,and. most importantly, we EMPOWER them with choice; by giving them the opportunity to select any pair of shoes they want from our traveling inventory of high-quality athletic shoes, just like the ones their friends at school might be wearing. In the short-term, our programming provides simple necessities in a fun and exciting atmosphere. But long after the recipients outgrow their Goodie Two Shoes of choice, we hope the children remember their positive interaction with a caring community volunteer, and the feelings of EMPOWERMENT, which came with making an unrestrained, positive choice and draw on that experience when making decisions in the future.
