Shoes Speak Louder than Words

Since our founding in 2010, Shoes 4 The Shoeless has delivered well over 50,000 pairs of shoes and socks to disadvantaged children within the Dayton, Ohio region. The need is still great, our work will continue, will you consider joining the fight with us?


We always talk about how each pair of shoes is part of a different story. Each pair goes to a child who has known such pain…often more than any of us could imagine.
