Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Arts & Culture, Museums

Mission: Our mission is to provide assistance worldwide to low income families and individuals in order to improve their living conditions. We are focused on providing resources that make an economic and social impact on under served communities, while increasing their quality of life and meeting the immediate need for food, clothing and personal hygiene product donations. Through our efforts we provide social support services and have maintained a long-term commitment to public service. We give hope to the hopeless, shoes to the bare-foot, food to the hungry and clothing to those in need.

Results: As President of On Your Feet Incorporated. We had the opportunity to fly up to Redding, California to pass out $100 gift cards that were donated to our organization by one of our generous donors. There we met some of the nicest people in the world. My heart goes out to the families and individuals there who lost their homes. Some of the stories we heard made us cry. They can truly use help rebuilding homes. A lot of families and individuals there some with no insurance have no place to go. The gift cards came in handy. After we finished passing out gift cards we drove to where homes were completely destroyed. It is very devastating to see everything someone has worked so hard for and memories gone. We will continue to help those in Redding as much as we can and other areas of the country where help is needed. After the Fires and Hurricanes are gone. Please keep these families and individuals in your prayers. Please continue to help them. This takes years of rebuilding and getting things back to normal. We sincerely thank all of our donors for their generous support and kind hearts. We could not do our work without you and God. Thank you for your continued support.

Target demographics: Low income families and individuals throughout Southern Calif. And also assist in disaster relief across the country and abroad.

Direct beneficiaries per year: We service over 40000 families per year

Geographic areas served: Southern California

Programs: Community give away events and disaster relief

To Those that Care about Community!
We would like to introduce you to a great organization-- “On Your Feet” a 5012c-3 non-profit organization located in the San Diego area. They provide beneficial items to the low-income and down-hearted families both in San Diego and beyond. Founder, Geraldine Hill, started about 20 years ago when she happened upon a woman in her bare feet. Geraldine gave her the shoes off her feet, and has been gleaning from designers and manufactures all across the country since then to continue the mission. Each year there are tons of perfectly good items destroyed and poured into landfills. Annually “On Your Feet” works diligently to collect and redistribute—tons of clothing, shoes and household items and so much more into the hands of those in need. This group also Hosts 5 or more events each year, with hundreds of family’s lining up hours in advance to receive a share, as they know that great useful items – not used hand-me-downs will flow into their lives. A typical donation to a family could include a NEW Man’s Dress suit appropriate for a job interview, some clean sheets or pillows, decent shoes, kid’s clothes and toys that don’t scream thrift finds, children’s books, and sometimes enough food stuffs to stock a pantry and so much more depending on the recent collections.
This sharing process has developed into a full time endeavor for a growing crew, a bursting storage space and soaring freight/transportation costs. I hope any reading will quickly join with financial and/or like kind donations.
We have worked alongside her crew at numerous give away events. Our employees and friends have also volunteered on many occasions. It is a most fulfilling work to see the grateful faces of those receiving items that Food Stamps cannot provide.

Regards,
Debi Reed

On Your Feet is the perfect name for this organization. It literally gives individuals the necessities to pick themselves up again and face the world with dignity and confidence. Whether it’s a suit and dress shoes for an interview or a change of clothing for school aged children, many lives are changed by knowing someone cares.

Having the opportunity to assist with distribution of clothing, bedding and hygiene products has impacted my life forever. I have learned a new level of gratitude unlike ever before in my life. Not to mention the encouragement and authentic love shown by On Your Feet, to the often forgotten members of society which is priceless.

My fondest memory was going downtown San Diego last winter and passing out blankets, jackets, gloves and other items to the homeless. Many tears flowed that day because of the generosity and top of the line apparel given out in abundance.

Although I have worked with other nonprofits, the sincerity, dedication and genuine love far exceeds the rest. I feel honored and privileged to be associated with On Your Feet FRC.

On your Feet was there for me at a very dark time in my life, and was able to help give me the resources to get out of that spot. I hope they continue their work and can find other people to help in the same way. Thank you.

I have had the oppurtunity to volunteer with this amazing company over the past couple of years. Being able to offer to offer help to so many people across the community is such a blessing. I hope they continue to help those in need and inspire others to do the same.

On Your Feet Inc. and it’s employees and volunteers are the most giving and thoughtful group of people I have ever been associated with. I have been apart of this organization for a number of years now and very proud of it. I am most proud of the work we done with the gift card giveaway for the victims of the Redding wildfires.

It was such a good feeling seeing families being blessed by On Your Feet, Inc. This fire season has been one of our worst ever. The smiles and few laughs were good to see and hear. Thank you On Your Feet, Inc for making that possible with your generosity.

It was a great pleasure meeting the folks from On Your Feet and assisting them with connecting to the communities devastated by the 2018 wildland fires in Shasta County. They made a positive impact in the lives of many people in our area.

My name is Peggy Sue Cooper, and I wanted to publicly thank On Your Feet Inc., for being present in the earth at this time of crisis for all humanity. It doesn’t matter what your ethnic, social or economic status maybe this organization will be there for you and your family at your time of need. When our family personally needed help with clothing for our daily needs and was strapped financially they at On Your Feet Inc., was there for us, and we were not treated like a number but with dignity and respect. Thanks again to On Your Feet Inc., may you keep up the Good Works!

The team from On Your Feet FRC came to our community after we had a terrible fire season that had burned many homes throughout our area. The genuine concern and gift cards distributed allowed families to have a small break from the struggle. I cannot say thank you enough. Photo credit Mike Daly

I am a social service clerk for the Salvation Army in Reddin, California. On Your Feet, Inc was so awesome they flew into town and gave away thousands of dollars in gift cards to families that lost everything in the Carr and Delta Fires. And when many of the families couldn't make it in they flew into town a second time and blessed the rest of the families. Keep up the giving spirit.
Bless you all.

I have volunteered many times for this organization. I have never realized how many low income and homeless families there really were. Watching how grateful they were to receive the items given away , it really pulled at my heart. This company always makes sure that everyone in line has what they need. Even during hot weather cold water was given to the families . It really amazes me with what these people do . How much it just feels like they genuinely care about the families who do with out . Keep up the good work !

I've helped out with some other community projects but can honestly say none felt as great as helping out with the events held by On Your Feet. A great sense of relief when you see these people come who have very little or nothing, and you get to give all these products and clothing to them and see their faces just light up. A big feeling of just joy and goodness when you look at all the good that they have done and really a thought to think that i got to help out with such an amazing event. I not only got out to help reach out to others thanks to On Your Feet, but they have also helped me tremendously. I just can't wait to help out at the next event!!

I am a visitor from a galaxy far far away. Everyone on my home planet was greedy and selfish and mean as the devil. I searched the universe for a loving, caring and giving people. My ship landed at 'On Your Feet' and I knew right away I had reached my final destination. There were wonderful beings passing out food, clothing, water, bedding and many other treasurers to the needy families. I joined in and felt my heart swell with pride. I had finally found a place where I can help others and make this world a beautiful and happy place to exist. Because of 'On Your Feet' the species will live long and prosper.

First let me start by thanking On Your Feet Inc. for showing me how good it feels to help those in need. I am a retired city worker and was introduced to On Your Feet Inc. as a volunteer. That was 5 years ago and have not stopped sense. On Your Feet Inc. helps anywhere between 3000 to 4000 families per event. To see the smiles on the faces of the families they assist is priceless. I love helping them as they pass out food, clothing, shoes, personal care products, bedding and other items that help bless the lives of the less fortunate.

I recently worked yet another of the great events at On Your Feet... I was at the book station, and cannot tell you how delightful it was to hand each child a bag of books hand picked to their reading level. They would open those books and read right while they were in line! This group is always on the spot to fill something for the tummy, soul, warmth, refreshment, and comfort, but this Saturday also had something for the mind. Each event has been better than the last. I am looking forward to working the next as well.

As a volunteer for On Your Feet, I've got to experience first hand the AMAZING work and efforts that this nonprofit is putting forth in the community and all over. I believe that they have not only been great at providing for the community but a great motivation for the community to strive through the rough times. They serve as a reminder that someone out there cares for the well being of those who are afflicted during this down and out economy. I've truly been inspired by these wonderful people to always be kind and think of others no matter my current situation. For even if you can only offer a warm smile and a point in the right direction, you never know - you may be that helping hand that lifts someone to get back on their feet.

Volunteering with this nonprofit organization has been a eye opening experience for me. I've never truly considered all the many people in need living in my community. I've witnessed the struggle that many of the clients have had to fight through to get to the place of need that they were in when they walked into On Your Feet's doors. I am only honored to have been on the giving end and at the end of the day it has truly brought myself closer to feeling like I've made an impact on others lives and what a fulfilling feeling that has been. Thank you, On Your Feet.
