Changing Children's Lives
One Pair of Shoes at a Time
What began in Claremont, California in 1992 has turned into the largest national organization of its kind. Today, Shoes That Fit is 20 years old and celebrating our One Millionth pair of shoes donated.
At Shoes That Fit, our mission is to provide new shoes to children in need so they can attend school in comfort and with dignity, better prepared to learn and play.
Accepting no government funding whatsoever, and with 100% of community donations going directly to school children through an impressive network of volunteer-run local grassroots chapters, Shoes That Fit is uniquely efficient and effective in its life-changing operations. We are also very proud to have earned Charity Navigator's highest rating of 4 Stars.
Most importantly, Shoes That Fit is helping kids improve their self-esteem and fit in at school by eliminating one of poverty’s most visible and debilitating marks. If you’d like to help, we’d love to have you join us.
