Shoes of Hope

Shoes of Hope is Samaritan’s Feet overarching shoe distribution initiative both in the United States and around the world. Our goal is to bring a life-changing message of hope, love, and compassion to everyone we serve. Every time we sit across from a child, we not only meet their physical needs with a pair of shoes and socks, but we spend quality time with them asking about their dreams and their lives.

Shoes of Hope distributions are generally one day events where our volunteers and staff welcome participants, share Samaritan’s Feet story of hope, wash their feet, and provide them with a new pair of socks and shoes. Objectives:

  • Provide new athletic shoes and socks for needy individuals.
  • Partner with local schools, corporations, non-profits and faith based organizations, utilizing the power of collaboration to transform communities through service
  • Encourage both students and volunteers with the life changing message of hope and respect for all people.
  • Prevent the spread of diseases by protecting feet from infections and contaminated soil.
