Charity of the week: Shoes That Fit

Last year, Shoes That Fit supplied 120,000 children in 41 states with new shoes.

Poor children too often have to go to school wearing shoes that are falling apart, mismatched, or a bad fit, and that can be embarrassing for anyone, especially a young child. Shoes That Fit (shoesthatfit.org) provides kids with new shoes so that they can go to school in comfort and with dignity—and focus on their studies instead of their circumstances. The organization’s volunteer-run grassroots chapters work with more than 1,900 schools around the country to identify children in need and provide them with new, correctly sized shoes. Last year, Shoes That Fit supplied 120,000 children in 41 states with new shoes. Next year, its 20th anniversary, it hopes to give away its millionth pair.

Each charity we feature has earned a four-star overall rating from Charity Navigator, which ranks not-for-profit organizations on the strength of their finances, their control of administrative and fund-raising expenses, and the transparency of their operations. Four stars is the group’s highest ranking.
