Shoes of Hope

Least of These Carolinas is excited to announce our annual Shoes of Hope event, a heartwarming initiative that aims to provide foster children with brand new shoes and essential items as they prepare for the upcoming school year. 


Rutherfordton: July 27

Gastonia: July 30-31

During this special occasion, kids in foster and kinship care will have the opportunity to select a brand new pair of shoes that not only fit them perfectly but also reflects their personal style and preferences. In addition to the new shoes, they will receive a range of miscellaneous items, such as backpacks, socks and underwear to ensure they feel confident and well-equipped for the new academic year. Shoes of Hope is more than just a distribution event; it is a celebration of resilience, hope, and the belief that every child deserves to feel valued and supported.
