Laces of Love provides NEW shoes to low income and disadvantaged children in Collier and Lee Counties, Florida and educates the public on the needs of these children. Shoes are distributed through the schools and not for profit organizations that serve "Laces" kids. Shoes are not given directly to families.
Supporters donate new shoes (preferably sneakers) and funds to purchase new shoes. Over 7,000 needy kids receive a pair of "Laces" shoes each year.
Laces of Love also provides a limited number of sports shoes to needy students who, without proper footwear, would not be able to play their sport.
