“Shoetober” is Clothes To Kids month-long collection drive for new and gently used shoes. It has been so popular we are extending it through November – ShoeVember.  Each year Clothes To Kids provides more than 13,000 pairs of shoes to kids in our communities. Too often families cannot afford shoes and much too often these children go to school with shoes too tight or too big.  Don’t be spooked, we need Y-O-U-R help with Shoetober!

160,000 kids in Hillsborough and Pinellas cannot afford school shoes.  You’ve Been “Shoed” helps Clothes To Kids fulfill our mission is to provide new and quality used clothing, which includes shoes that fit, to low income or in crisis school aged children (PreK4-12th grade) free of charge.  We need children sizes 9 thru adult size 14.  Please check you closets or visit our links to buy some shoes.
