100+ Women Who Care awards $10,275 to Shoes that Fit10/17/2016
100+ Women Who Care donated $10,275 to Shoes that Fit at the organization’s quarterly meeting in August. This local organization will use the funds to purchase new, size-specific shoes, boots and winter coats for Des Moines area children in need. This organization has worked with 32 local elementary schools for the past 15 years filling needs in the community.
As a result, Shoes that Fit will be presented with a check approximating $10,275 at the organization’s quarterly meeting in November. The mission of the Shoes that Fit Charity is to provide new shoes to children in need so they can attend school in comfort and with dignity, better prepared to learn and play. The funds will be used immediately full-filling the needs before the cold weather sets in.
Shoes that Fit began in California in 1992. The Des Moines chapter came to existence in 2001 and is a 100 percent volunteer ran organization. The Des Moines chapter is supported by Mediacom.
