The SC4K Board of Directors consists of corporate and community leaders devoted to improving the lives of children in Greater Cleveland. The Board of Directors defines the organization’s mission, values and vision by engaging in short and long-term planning for the organization. The board monitors fiscal management of the organization and maintains accountability to SC4K's funders and donors by reviewing and approving the annual budget, major program plans and organizational policies. Its members ensure the staff has the resources necessary to operate effectively. The Board actively represents the organization to the public, especially to current and potential financial supporters. The board also serves as a voice for the distribution partners and individuals in the community that are served by SC4K. On a personal level, each board member participates actively in board meetings and volunteers on at least one board committee. Board members also make a personal donation to the organization.

Associate Board

The Associate Board is a group of dedicated young professional volunteers who generate awareness and funds to support the work of Shoes and Clothes for Kids. By engaging our peers in events and activities that develop a link to Shoes and Clothes for Kids, we’re helping to ensure the viability of the organization now and in the future. One of the benefits of a group like the Associate Board is that it helps develop future philanthropic community leaders as well.

Founded in 2005, the Associate Board accomplishes its work by engaging its members and volunteers on project teams that coordinate volunteer recruitment & retention, fundraisers and other events and communications activities.

Distribution Partners

SC4K works with a network of social service agencies in Greater Cleveland strategically located in Greater Cleveland in areas with the greatest need. Customers receive SC4K product directly from our Distribution Partners. Distribution Partners pick up boxes of clothing and shoe vouchers directly from our warehouse. Partners then schedule a distribution(s) at their site, meet with customers to determine eligibility, distribute our product and enter the documentation into the SC4K online extranet program. The average distribution for clothing is valued at $350,000.00 and the average distribution of shoe vouchers is valued at approximately $26,000.00. 

Click here for more information on our Distribution Partners including a map of their locations.

SC4K does not charge its Distribution Partners or its recipients any product or services. 

Beyond serving the basic needs of thousands of deserving children, SC4K serves as a change agent for area families living in poverty. By providing new clothes and shoe gift cards through our Distribution Partner network, we can connect these families with other important programs and services working to improve and enrich their lives. These programs include food pantries, GED education programs, resale shops, job placement, Head Start, daycare, immunization, etc. 


With a small professional staff, volunteers are critical to the operation of Shoes and Clothes for Kids. Without volunteers, we would be unable to sort, pack and distribute 2.3 million dollars worth of brand new shoes and clothes to thousands of children annually.

Volunteers also play an important role in governing the organization on our board, advisory board and associate board, helping in the office, and assisting with all aspects of our special events.

Janice lived in Chicago working various jobs from accountant to personal assistant. While working she also found the time to volunteer as a tax preparer for low income families and individuals and as Sunday school teacher. She moved back to Cleveland several years ago and became a caregiver.

She started out as a volunteer stocking the shelves at the resource center and helping with the uniform distributions. May 2019 marked her one year volunteer anniversary at SC4K. Because of her dedication and hard work, she has been hired as the Program Coordinator for our uniform and supply programs.

In her spare time, she spends time with her friends and family, watches NBA games, and loves yoga classes. Her favorite shoes are a pair of blue Doc Martens she bought London and the puma shoes she wears almost every day.


Deana Leone, Finance and Administrative Coordinator

Deana joined SC4K in September 2019 and brings more than 25 years' experience in the non-profit sector. She has filled a variety of roles in the areas of case management, program administrations, bookkeeping, community outreach, executive-level leadership, and everything in between, where she learned the value of teamwork, flexibility, and willingness to adapt to accomplish a mission. Her hands-on experience has given her an understanding of frontline as well as back-office work and their importance to a successful organization.

Deana's background includes starting a faith-based non-profit in the city of Pittsburgh that served thousands of people through a grassroots, community-based network of partners and volunteers, similar to what SC4K does. In addition to her work at SC4K, she is one of the pastors at CityReach Church and performs part-time bookkeeping duties for two local small businesses.

Her favorite shoes are slip-on sandals because they are quick and comfortable to be on the move!

She is responsible for the management of over three million dollars worth of inventory for all SC4K programs, including the school supply warehouse for the recently acquired Cleveland Kids in Need program. Over the last few years SC4K has gone through significant change and growth and Monica has demonstrated she is able to thrive in the planning, development, and implementation of new programs. As Director of Programs, she is able to use her organizational, problem solving, and collaborative skills to successfully manage the Legacy, Browns Special Teams Package, Cleveland Kids in Need, new French Toast Classroom Guarantee Pilot, Uniforms for Kids programs.

Monica loves to travel and explore new places. Being such a huge NBA fan, she has attended games in 24 of the 29 NBA arenas. When she is not traveling she enjoys game nights with family and friends and book club which she has been a member of for the last 21 years.
