More Than Shoes

1 in 7 children lives in poverty

And shoes are one of the most obvious signs of poverty. Kids can suffer stigma and bullying simply for having a poor-quality pair of shoes. This is especially true for underserved, at risk, and — most of all — foster kids.

The gift of a new pair of shoes can be a pivotal turning point in a foster child’s life. Shoes4Grades does not give out previously-owned shoes. When our kids receive their brand new shoes, 80% see their average GPA increase by 10% on their next report card. Join Shoes4Grades by making a difference in a child’s life.
