Mission

The Goodie Two Shoes Foundation provides disadvantaged children and children in crisis with new shoes and socks as well as other items deemed essential for good health and positive development.

Services

The Goodie Two Shoes Foundation strives to provide new shoes, socks, and more to 10,000 disadvantaged children each year.

Some of the children we assist have NEVER had a new pair of shoes of their own much less been given the opportunity and empowerment to make an unrestrained choice. Our program really makes a difference to children who don't have a single properly fitting pair of shoes to call their own, and children who stuff paper towels in the toes to make the over-sized pair they have wearable, and children who take out the laces and yank out the tongue so that their growing feet can still be stuffed inside, and children who miss school because they share a single pair of shoes with a sister AND a cousin. Sound ridiculous? It's not and it happens right here in Las Vegas every single day.

If something as simple as having a new pair of properly fitting shoes can brighten a child's day, positively affect their growth and development and even keep them in school, then Goodie Two Shoes is building a better foundation one foot at a time!

You Can Help by Providing Goods
