Shoes4Kids 2018

A mom told me that her kids were so excited by their new shoes and were touched that individuals cared about them.  - That’s why we do this.

Shoes4Kids, Inc. has been around since 2006 and has helped thousands of kids in the host cities of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) NEXT Conference. Shoes4Kids, Inc. is a nonprofit 501 © (3) charity that provides NEW athletic shoes and socks to underserved and under privileged children. Shoes4Kids, Inc. has distributed over 12,000 pairs of NEW youth athletic shoes since 2006.

Shoes4Kids, Inc. will be organizing its 12th S4K NEXT Event in Orlando, FL June 2018. The goal is to raise $10,000 to help purchase 500 pairs of new shoes.

It has been heartbreaking over the years to see so many children wearing shoes that no longer fit them. I’ve had tough times in my life, as many of us have. But I never imagined so many children still needing a good pair of shoes. Won’t you consider helping Shoes4Kids, Inc.?
