Non-Profit Shoes That Fit Receives Nationwide Donation and Support From Athletic-Inspired Fashion Retailer Hibbett

As part of the new partnership, Hibbett will provide thousands of pairs of brand-name shoes throughout the year to help children from low income families.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 29, 2024 / — National nonprofit Shoes That Fit is proud to announced a new partnership commencing with a generous donation of new, brand-named shoes from Alabama-based omnichannel retailer, Hibbett, Inc. As part of the new partnership, Hibbett will provide thousands of pairs of brand-name shoes throughout the year to Shoes That Fit to help children from low income families.

Earlier this month, Hibbett sent the first quarterly shipment of more than 4,000 pairs of footwear to Shoes That Fit headquarters in California. The donated pairs will reach low-income students in need via various events and delivery programs that Shoes That Fit conducts nationwide.

“Shoes are important to kids. But good athletic shoes are expensive and when low-income families are forced to choose food and rent over shoes, children are left wearing shoes that hurt, embarrass them; some kids skip school altogether. We are so grateful to Hibbett for meeting this need and investing in the lives of children by providing brand new shoes, making it possible for children to attend school, participate in sports, and enjoy everything childhood has to offer. Thank you for your continued partnership.” – CEO and Executive Director, Shoes That Fit, Amy Fass

Through ongoing donations, we are confident in the profound and lasting positive impact we can achieve together.”
