Our Services

All children should start school on equal footing.

First Day Shoe Fund distributes brand new athletic shoes through local school districts each fall. During the first two months of each new school year, we distribute shoes to students in need at all Kalamazoo County Public Elementary Schools.

First Day Shoe Fund continues to help students in urgent need throughout the school year whenever possible.

Who Is Eligible For New Shoes?

Area Pre-K through 5th grade students in need are eligible to receive shoes from FDSF. Shoes are ordered and distributed through participating Kalamazoo County elementary schools.
