On Friday, July 29, Champion Technologies of Houston Texas donated almost $2,000 to Fort Bend County Social Services Walk with Pride Shoe Program. The donations were made by employees and matched by the corporate office of Champion Technologies.Social Services is extremely grateful for the large contribution.
For over 20 years, Fort Bend County Social Services has put on the “Walk with Pride Shoe Program” in collaboration with various contributors including charitable organizations, private businesses, and individuals in the community. Each year before school begins, children of low income families can register to receive a free pair of shoes from select Payless Shoe stores.
Each eligible child receives one-on-one attention from a volunteer throughout the shoe selection process, and leaves with a new pair of shoes they can be proud of the first day of school. Last year 1,387 children received a new pair of shoes.
While the agency would like to help every child in need, the number of children it can help depends on the amount of funding received. Donations are being accepted at this time.
For more information on registration and donation please contact Fort Bend County Social Services: Rosenberg Office 281-342-7300 or the Missouri City Office 281-403-8050.
