Back to School Shoes



New Shoes Fundraising Program

We're fundraising all year long to buy new shoes for children at CCO, our biggest drive for new shoes is during our back to school program so children can go to school with new or gently used shoes.

All donations through the link on this page will be used by the social workers to take the neediest of children on a shopping spree to buy one pair of new shoes (and maybe a pair of new socks if we raise enough money). We all know the back to school shopping is chaotic, but please take a moment to help at least one child start the new year with a brand new pair of shoes.
