What is the grant for and how will it benefit the community?
Shoes that Fit’s goal in 2024 is to distribute 1000 new sneakers to Delaware students in need. The Invest in Others grant would fund 500 of these sneakers. We work with school contacts to identify, measure and request these sneakers for their homeless and low income students. The school request list is fulfilled from Shoes That Fit’s California warehouse, where brand name sneakers (Skechers, Fila, Puma, Nike, Adidas) are housed. The sneakers are shipped directly to the student’s school and are discreetly distributed by the school contact to the student
