Shoes That Fit is a national children's charity that helps kids with no money get new athletic shoes. About 1 in 5 children lives in poverty and in the U.S., kids that receive new shoes from Shoes That Fit are more likely to stay in school and increase their physical activity.
Shoes That Fit does not give out previously owned shoes, they deliver shoes to children in poverty that are exactly measured for their feet. This non-profit has delivered over 2.3 million pairs of brand new shoes since 1992. Over 131,000 shoes are distributed to kids every year in 2,500 schools nationally.
