Donation to New Kicks for Kids for $1,000 during 2015 Spring Grants

May 11, 2015 | Archive, Blog, Dublin Community Other, Health and Human Services, News

We walk, run and play in our shoes. As we play we meet new faces and people and grow as individuals. But what about those that do not own shoes, or those whose shoes cause them pain? For some local children and teens living in shelters this is a reality.

New Kicks for Kids was established by a Dublin teen who had witnessed children and young adults living in shelters but not able to have the simple luxury of a new or well fitting pair of shoes.

Seeking a way to get shoes to the needy, New Kicks for Kids sets out with a mission to work with Columbus manufacturers and distributors to access a larger number of shoes.
