First Day Shoe Fund has delivered more than 50,000 pairs of shoes to local children in our first 16 years of existence.With your help, we can do even more in the coming years.
Through distribution events, First Day Shoe Fund provides a new pair of athletic shoes to students in Kalamazoo County public elementary schools.
In 2022, that meant 4,734 children received our shoes – but we know there is a lot more need in Kalamazoo County.
We want all children to experience the best that school can offer them. New shoes help foster self-esteem, prevent bullying, allow students to participate in sports, and fulfill a basic need that parents may not be able to afford.
