Donate shoes to Kicks for the Kids

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Kicks for the Kids gives new and ‘gently used’ shoes to students who may not have shoes to wear to school.

Sadly, there are children in our community who are embarrassed to go to school because their shoes are falling apart or their shoes don’t fit anymore. 

That’s why Kicks for the Kids was created.  

You can help by donating shoes for a child in kindergarten through high school.  We have a collection box at WJXT Channel 4, Fields Auto Group Dealerships, Jacksonville area Tire Outlets; Turner Pest Control; 121 Financial Credit Union Branches, 1st Place Sports, Meow and Barks Boutique, and 1 Foxy Lady Café.   Last year 3,000 pairs of shoes were collected. We want to exceed that number this year! 

Please donate new or ‘gently’ used shoes until July 31st .  We’re collecting new shoes for younger children, but will accept ‘gently’ used shoes that kids can wear to school.   Many of our older students would love to get a nice pair of sneakers that are in good condition.  The shoe giveaway event will be Sunday, August 4th.  First come, first served—no registration required.  More details about the giveaway event will be announced soon.
