How We Work

Simply put, Shoes That Fit helps kids improve their self-esteem. How do we do this? By providing them with much-needed new shoes so that they can go to school in comfort and with dignity and focus on their studies rather than their circumstances.

First, we match sponsoring groups with nearby schools that have children in need. A sponsor can be any group of people; a business, school, church, civic organization or simply a group of caring friends. Next, a sponsoring group decides how many children they can help. Their chosen school identifies the children most in need of new shoes and then measures these students for proper size and fit with materials we provide.

Finally, the sponsoring group uses this information to buy exactly what each child needs and makes the much-appreciated delivery to the school. By using this model with every sponsoring group across America, volunteers are making a direct impact on the children in their own communities.
