Shoes! Shoes! Shoes! Help Kids Get to School, Learn, Play!

My Students

Most (90%) of our wonderful students live below or near the poverty line. About 60% of our students are learning English in school. Sometimes, our school struggles to get the resources we need to teach and care for our incredible students. This makes the job of a school even more important.

Many students we teach experience poverty, but that's just where they are starting.

Our students love to create art and read. They write computer code and even perform Shakespeare. They have big dreams, but they need to work hard now. Help them reach for those dreams!

My Project

Many of my students come from homes where they have what they need, but the truth is some don't. Some of my students come to school in the wintertime wearing flip flops. Some kids walk around with holes in their shoes. One little boy came to school wearing his mother's shoes, laced up tight, because he didn't have anything else. With your help, we can change this.

We can make sure that every kid has a pair of shoes!

By supporting this project, you will be sending us a huge box of brand new shoes. Shoes that kids can walk to school in, play during recess in, and be proud of. Shoes are such a simple thing, but they will make a huge difference for kids!
