* SOLES OF LUV IS A 501(c) (3) PUBLIC NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION. THE MEN AND WOMEN VOLUNTEER THEIR TIME AND EFFORTS, THERE ARE NO SALARIES. WE OPERATE SOLELY ON DONATIONS.
Children are selected for Soles of Luv shoes and socks by their guidance counselor, social worker, school nurse, teacher, or principal or by a legal guardian for the child.
The adults are asked to accurately measure the child’s feet for proper fit and let Soles of Luv know the child’s age, gender, and shoe size. If we don’t already have appropriate shoes on hand, Soles of Luv “sponsors” will purchase shoes and socks for the child and deliver them to the Soles of Luv address by the date given or schedule a pick up by one of our Soles of Luv volunteers. All NEW shoes are fitted and given to the child on a pre-scheduled distribution date at the school. All NEW shoes and socks are given to the child in a colorful drawstring reusable backpack.
We ask that the child write a thank you note or draw a picture of their new shoes and send their thank you to Soles of Luv.
We pre-schedule volunteers at each school who help distribute Soles of Luv shoes and socks to the children.
