What You'll Get


The Issue: Low-Income Kids Without Access to New Shoes

In 2007, 23% of people experiencing homelessness were members of households with children, according to the Hunger and Homelessness Survey by the US Conference of Mayors. And the US Census Bureau reported that more than one in five children in this country lived in poverty in 2010.

Considering youth quickly grow out of their shoes, they need new pairs of shoes each year, resulting in a financial burden that many families cannot bear. In Jacob's Shoes provides new and gently used shoes to children throughout the year. The organization typically receives the most requests for shoes during the school year's start and the holiday season, so it requires additional funding to purchase new shoes when the donor stock runs low.

The Campaign: Providing New Shoes to Low-Income Youth

If this Grassroots campaign raises $375, then In Jacob’s Shoes can provide a new pair of shoes to 25 low-income children. Stylebuilt Construction, Inc. will match donations up to a $500 total. Each additional $15 raised will provide a pair of shoes for another child.

All donations will be matched up to a $500 total by Stylebuilt Construction, Inc.
