 The Claremont Village Merchants are at it again! In June they held their annual Craft Beer Walk where our staff and volunteers registered and checked in participants while receiving proceeds from the event. Now they have their annual Back-to-School Backpack drive. 250 local school children will receive backpacks, school supplies and shoes to help kids start school on the right foot! Thank you Claremont Village Merchants!
 
On Saturday July 16, Claremont Craft Ales held their 4th Anniversary Party. Shoes That Fit staff, board members, and volunteers participated by pouring beer, checking in attendees, and hosting a table at the entrance of our Emergency Warehouse. Attendees were encouraged to bring new socks to benefit the organization, and donated a total of 130 pairs.
 
The Heads Up Youth Foundation joined forces with Shoes That Fit to deliver 100 pairs of shoes to kids at Maurice Sendak Elementary School in North Hollywood.
