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

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.
