The Holiday Giving Season Is Here!

Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday…Mark your calendar for #GivingTuesday,  December 2 and join us in a national day of giving. We encourage you to make a secure donation through our website. You can also participate in our Nordstrom, New Balance Holiday Giving partnership! (Details below)
 
• Shoes That Fit is proud to partner with Nordstrom this holiday season to provide 15,000 children in need across the country with New Balance athletic shoes!  From now through December 24, you can visit any Nordstrom shoe department or Nordstrom Rack checkout in the U.S. to purchase a Holiday Giving Card for only $10! Not near a store? No problem! You can also purchase a giving card online through the Shoes That Fit website at http://www.shoesthatfit.org/Get-Involved/NordstromCares. This partnership, now in its fifth year, has provided 43,700 pairs of new shoes to students across the U.S.  Your giving card purchase ensures that a local child in need will receive much needed new shoes that fit in time for the holiday season. 
 
 
 
• Please join us in welcoming Verisight, Inc. as our newest corporate partner! Verisight is a recognized leader in comprehensive retirement plan services and consulting solutions.  Verisight employee volunteers have provided new shoes to elementary school children in Concord, CA, Rockford and Moline, IL, Rio Vista, CA, Chicago, IL and Des Moines, IA through the Shoes That Fit program. Through this new partnership, more children in need will benefit from our program in Mobile, AL, Dallas, TX and Overland Park, KS.  Welcome to the Shoes That Fit family!
 
 
• A team of Shoes That Fit supporters will participate in a fundraising Holiday Half Marathon and 5K Run/Walk at Pomona Fairplex (CA) December 13 and 14! Your support of our inaugural team in this exciting event will ensure that together we continue to expand our reach, helping children in need through our program. You can contribute to any of our individual runners who’ve created their own fundraising page or make a general donation to the Shoes That Fit team through MyCharityofChoice.com.  We invite you to join us on race days to help cheer on our runners and celebrate with us at the finish line. We’d also like to thank Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center and Foothill Transit for their sponsorship.
