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.
This is a fantastic charity doing it's part to help our local community with dedication and the utmost care. I will definitely donate again and again. Thank you!
Warm A Sole has helped our school The Mustard Seed for over 2 years now. We are a school for homeless children in downtown Sacramento. It's a blessing to see the smiles on our students faces when they are able to receive a new pair of shoes. This organization has been so great to our school we can't thank them enough. You guys are amazing!!!
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.

I can't say enough about Warm A Sole and how helpful and professional they are. I am currently not financially stable as I am a single mother of three. Warm A Sole help me with new shoes for my children. It is nice knowing that there are people out there that really do care and want to help! Thank you again 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!!!!
