Think of the shoes that you discard. The words that come to mind may be: damaged, worn out, too tight or too big, or out of style. Unfortunately, these words often describe the shoes worn by children of so many of our families. Purchasing shoes for low-income children is a real expense that is often delayed in order to pay the bills, so our children frequently wear shoes that are too small and completely worn-out. Children who wear these shoes experience discomfort and unnecessary embarrassment every day and are reminded of this every morning when they put on their shoes before school.
