“Kids of all backgrounds deserve to have high self-esteem and confidence from the clothes and shoes they’re wearing. This event will not only put smiles on faces, but it will let children know their community supports them, cherishes them, and shows them that they’re deserving.” Clark County Commissioner Justin Jones
“One in five children in the United States live in poverty, and shoes and other necessities are one of the most expensive items for low-income families to provide. When families must choose between putting food on the table or buying new shoes for school, you can imagine that food wins every time. The simple gift of a pair of shoes can increase a child’s confidence, attendance and performance at school, and we are so thankful that Zappos and Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Nevada are taking the time to make such a positive impact on these kids.” Amy Fass – Executive Director, Shoes That Fit
