Gotta Have Sole

Gotta Have Sole provides new footwear to children in homeless shelters. The project engages more than 1,000 volunteers and has provided new shoes to more than 9,000 children living in homeless shelters in 15 states across the country. Gotta Have Sole partners with footwear manufacturers, coordinates shoe drives, and organizes fundraisers to provide homeless youth with comfortable shoes to call their own. Two additional GottaHaveSole projects include SOLEdiers, which provides veterans with new shoes, and Serving Love, a project that equips disadvantaged youth with the active footwear they need to participate in sports.
