Child homelessness is here.
17,280 kids in greater St. Louis are experiencing homelessness; but why give shoes to kids without homes?
While many organizations are focused on the critical needs of food and shelter, school officials tell us shoes are essential for students to succeed in school.
A good pair of shoes can change a child’s future.
Kids who receive new shoes have more confidence, attend school more regularly, and are more physically active.
