The COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t slowed the need for kids in our community. With the opening of our branches, KRQE Cares and Kirtland Federal Credit Union are once again gearing up to collect shoes for the Shoes For Kids campaign.
A new, well-fitting pair of shoes opens a world of exploration for students, allowing them to fully engage in all areas of their education. Unfortunately, some families are not able to provide a new pair of shoes for their growing kids—it’s Shoes For Kids’ mission to change that reality for families in need at Title I schools in Albuquerque.
March 1–31, 2021, all Kirtland FCU branches will accept donations of new shoes for the Shoes For Kids program!
New athletic shoes of ANY size for ANY gender.
“These shoes change lives,” says Carolyn Rush with KRQE Cares. “I put a new pair of shoes on a child who had been known to have behavior issues. He didn’t say a word to me. But when we were done…he hugged me and told me ‘Thank you for caring about me’. We just don’t know what these kids are going through and something as simple as a new pair of shoes from a stranger can give these children light and hope for the future.”
