I started volunteering 2 years ago during the Christmas angel tree fundraiser. With helping collecting the shoes, to wrapping the shoes. Its a good feeling to know that a child in need will have new shoes to wear. Having to take the shoes to them and watching them open, brings tears to your eyes.
Warm a sole is an organization that i will continue to help in any which way i can.

I was inspired 3 years ago to start a Nonprofit that would thrive in our local communities and benefit children in need. By providing new shoes to children in need it creates confidence that carries them through tough times. It's important to let ALL children know how special they are and that people do care and want them to succeed in life. We have wonderful donors and volunteers that have made our organization thrive and we look forward to continuing our mission in the years ahead.

I am an elementary school teacher and Warm A Sole has provided new shoes for my students and for many other students in my school. These are kids who are in need and would not have any shoes if not for the donated shoes that Warm A Sole has provided us! Thank you for your donations!

Warm A Sole Inc is much appreciated and needed. Because of the organization, many of our kinship children were able to receive brand new shoes. The children were very excited when they received the shoes and it was a financial relief for their relative caregivers. Thank you for all that you do to support our children in care! Your generous donations move the difference in so many lives.

Thanks to Warm a Sole, 30 homeless children at the Next Move family shelter received brand new shoes for the school year! Not only were the shoes new, but they were also stylish and exactly the right size for each child. What a heartwarming experience to see the joy of children and parents upon opening new shoes. Next Move's families and staff truly appreciate the generosity of Warm a Sole!

Kathy and her team are amazing!!! Next Move was a first time recipient this year. They have gone above and beyond to provide the kids at my family shelter with brand new shoes for the 2017. We had very no expectations as we are a donation driven organization about the shoes that they children would receive. What our kids received was beyond any expections we could have ever had.Watching the children open brand new name brand shoes was amazing these shoes that Warm a Sole provided were top notch! These were shoes that any kid would be proud to wear to school. Thank you Kathy and to the Warm a Sole Team!

I work at a local public agency that works with children, youth, and young adults in foster care. My organization was invited to participate in coordination with Famous Footwear, Warm a Sole, and Good Day Sacramento event called Shoe Crazy where the reporter has a short amount of time to grab as many shoes as possible. Famous Footwear donated the amount the shoes were worth to provide to Warm a Sole who purchased shoes for the young dependents we care for. Warm a Sole followed up with us and did a great job coordinating delivery of the shoes. Thank you for providing a good service and helping our clients.

Warm A Sole is an amazing organization! For the past two years Warm A Sole has done a back to school drive for our local children in foster care. I cannot express enough how much of a difference Warm A Sole has made in the lives of all of the recipients of their thoughtfulness and generosity. This year we received 66 pairs of brand new, custom shopped-for shoes (most of which came to us in brand new backpacks!). Our children loved receiving the shoes! Now that they do not have to worry about wearing shoes that are falling apart, the kids are better able to focus on their academics and extracurricular activities. I could sing the praises of this incredible organization day in and day out. If you're looking for a worthwhile organization to support, I recommend Warm A Sole. They are making a tangible difference in the lives of the kids that tend to need it the most.

We love Warm A Sole! Their mission is easy to “tie” to your heartstrings. Warm A Sole has provided shoes, and confidence, to many homeless students in the Marysville Joint Unified School District. Our programs are a perfect “pair”. The founder and visionary of Warm A Sole is a true inspiration. Warm A Sole is willing to walk a million miles to distribute shoes and confidence to students in need. Warm A Sole’s program has definitely warmed the soul of many students and parents! Thank you Warm A Sole.

Warm A Sole has made tremendous progress in their first year of existence. By carefully selecting their staff, partners, and supporting associations, they are making every effort to build a trustworthy and reliable organization. The founder researches and develops a personal relationship with potential client’s administrators to evaluate and expedite the distribution of new shoes to children most in need.

Often, when people think about kids in foster care they automatically think of the babies and toddlers. People don't even realize that many teenagers are in foster care and need just as much love and support as the younger kids. Besides the love and support that is needed, shoes are often needed. As a social worker that works with teens, I see everyday what is needed. Shoes are one of the things that are greatly needed. Often, we get shoes donated for just the babies and toddlers, which leaves the teenagers growing out of their shoes. The teens don't have the resources to get the shoes that are needed, so I was thrilled when Warm A Sole reached out to us. Because of Warm A Sole, the teenagers I work with were able to start this year with a new pair of shoes. They even were able to get the shoes they wanted. Many of the youth said nobody had ever got them the shoes they wanted and they were all very grateful. I do not know what we would do if Warm A Sole was not so generous to alway help us!

I was so excited when Kathy Horan, Founder of Warm A Sole, asked me to be a part of it!!! They are an organization to provide new shoes to children who otherwise would not have the means to get them. Kathy has been working very hard to put smiles on children's faces as they put on their new shoes!!! Warm A Sole has been great to the community!!!!
