NONPROFITS SHOES THAT FIT AND PARTNERSHIP WITH NATIVE AMERICANS JOIN FORCES TO HELP CHILDREN IN SOUTH DAKOTA AND ARIZONA

National nonprofit Shoes That Fit is joining forces with Partnership With Native Americans® to assist children in Tribal communities.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, April 2, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- National nonprofit Shoes That Fit is joining forces with Partnership With Native Americans® to assist children in Tribal communities. Their first project is to provide brand new athletic shoes to 1,000 children at schools in Arizona and South Dakota.

Each region will receive about 500 pairs of shoes that will be distributed in mid-May. Children enrolled at these schools will receive the shoes, along with 5 pairs of socks each:
7 Mile Elementary School (Fort Apache Reservation in AZ)
St. Francis Elementary School (Rosebud Reservation in SD)
Lame Deer Elementary School (Northern Cheyenne Reservation in SD)
“New shoes and socks help promote physical activity, foot health, and confidence. Yet they are not that accessible to some families, especially with limited shopping and jobs in remote Tribal communities. By teaming up with Shoes That Fit, we can serve more children, brighten their summers, and ease the budget for their families. Partnerships like this are a good CSR model and a win-win for all involved.” – Joshua Arce, President and CEO, Partnership With Native Americans

"Shoes are important to kids. But good athletic shoes are expensive and when low-income families are forced to choose food and rent over clothing, children are left wearing shoes that hurt or embarrass them, and some kids skip school altogether. We are so grateful to Partnership with Native Americans for meeting this need and investing in the lives of children by providing brand new shoes, making it possible for children to attend school, participate in sports, and enjoy everything childhood has to offer. Thank you for this partnership." – Amy Fass, CEO and Executive Director, Shoes That Fit
