Shoes of Hope is Samaritan’s Feet overarching shoe distribution initiative both in the United States and around the world. The goal is to bring a life-changing message of hope, love, and compassion to everyone served. 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 volunteer-driven events where welcome participants, share Samaritan’s Feet story of hope, wash the feet of children in need, and provide them with a new pair of socks and shoes.

Objectives:

  • Provide new athletic shoes and socks for the kids associated with Las Americas. The kids are pre-selected and signed up through Las Americas.
  • 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.

Volunteers are needed in many capacities like event prep, foot washing, event logistics, playing games with kids and more!
