here because of you.

First Day Shoe Fund is able to continue giving back to our community because of the generosity of individuals like you and local organizations. The vast majority of shoes we give out to children each year are purchased using monetary donations from supporters like you. Whether you can give your time to volunteer, lend your expertise to help guide a committee (or even the board), or simply make a financial donation, we are incredibly grateful for each and every giving gesture. Together, we can ensure that all children start school on equal footing.



All donations are tax-deductible, and we have 501(c)(3) non-profit status. Because of this, we can stretch those dollars much farther!


First Day Shoe Fund needs volunteers throughout the year. Let us know where you’d love to lend a hand!
