Shoes of Hope

Once a year….right before school starts, we host a program that allows children in foster care and kinship care to get BRAND NEW SHOES, miscellaneous school supplies and more. We have an amazing partnership with Morgan Shoes in Gastonia. Doug Morgan makes sure these children have the latest styles from LIGHT UP sketchers to Bob’s or Converse – they have us covered!

A brand-new pair of shoes can make all the difference in the world to a child that is entering a new school year.

In 2023, we served 555 children across four cities! This year we are hosting Shoes of Hope in Gaston County, Rutherford County and Haywood County.
