For some parents, replacing their child’s outgrown shoes is a minor inconvenience. But for thousands of Cleveland families living in poverty, lack of proper shoes causes great anxiety—and can even create a barrier between their kids and school. By ensuring children have the basic items they need - like shoes - we can improve school attendance by up to 24% in Greater Cleveland schools. SC4K charges no fees to our recipients and therefore relies solely on the support of donations. SC4K purchases and distributes discounted gift cards instead of shoes, allowing families to purchase new shoes or boots of their own choosing that are stylish and fit properly. These gift cards help us carry out our mission with compassion, care and respect.
Your generous contribution will help remove barriers to education by ensuring thousands of children in Cleveland have proper shoes to wear to school. It will also give a student the pride and confidence that comes from having new shoes.
