We give hope to little feet, one pair of shoes at a time.
We are a 501c3 children's shoe charity. We partner with local Title-1 schools, to provide new sneakers for children need.
We LOVE our volunteers! If you'd like to host a shoe drive or start a local fundraiser, please let us know. We'd love to help. We also provide Community hours for young volunteers.
Thank you all for of your continued support and super generous donations! We absolutely couldn't do this without each and every one of you.
Many children in low income schools and underserved communities are unable to participate in sports because they don’t have the proper shoes. We gladly accept NEW and very gently used court shoes, football, soccer, baseball cleats, & spikes.
We work closely with school Social workers, nurses and teachers at Title 1 schools to ensure that EVERY child that needs a pair of shoes to attend school, has one. In 2023, we partnered with 62 low-income schools to provide new shoes to 3,673 children.
Poverty affects 23% of children under 5yo, and 34% of single-parent households. Recent statistics show that 1 in 3 children in Houston are currently living in poverty. We relieve the financial burden of having to buy new shoes when families like these can't afford to.
We are so grateful to local schools and businesses for hosting shoes drives throughout the year! The outpouring of love and support is incredible each and every time. Thank you!
We love partnering with other local community organizations to help bring shoes to local children and families in need. This past year, we blessed over 3,500 individuals with new shoes!
We have a special bond with our local homeless friends. Sole Loved actually began on the streets several years ago, bringing hope to those less fortunate, through the gift of a new pair of shoes.
It's amazing to see what a new pair of shoes can do. The anticipation, excitement, hope and pure JOY that we see in a child's eyes when they find the perfect pair of shoes, just can't be beat. We love bringing hope to the beautiful children in our community.
We have absolutely been blessed beyond measure this past year! Donations continue to pour in....many from out of state, from those of you we've never met. We want you to know that YOU are changing lives! YOU are making a difference!
We love helping you organize local fundraisers for Sole Loved! Please reach out to us if you have questions about getting started. Fundraisers should be stress-free, easy and lots of fun for everyone involved. Give us a call. We are here to help!
I am a wife, mother, and all around do-gooder! My passion in life is helping others, and rooting for the underdog. In a world where some of us are blessed beyond measure, I decided to slow down, take note and actually DO something that matters. I want to make a difference in this world. I want to make a difference to someone else. I want to show the beautiful children that we serve that there are good people in this world, who really love and care about them. I want to show them that there is something GOOD in this world, and that THAT something good, is Sole Loved. It starts right here. It starts with me. Our mission at Sole Loved is to bring hope to little feet, one pair of shoes at a time. That's right, NEW shoes. It really is that simple. To see the excitement in a child's eyes and tears of overwhelming joy when they receive, maybe for the first time, their new pair of shoes...well, that's when you know you've made a difference. It matters!! I'm so proud of this wonderful mission that I started, and hope that others will join us in making a difference too. -Stacy Bourgeois, CEO/Founder
