For 16 years, renowned shoe retailer Rack Room Shoes has been proud to partner with Shoes That Fit, a national non-profit organization that provides shoes to children in need to help them focus on their studies.
The mission of Shoes That Fit is to tackle one of the most visible signs of poverty in America by giving children in need new shoes to attend school with dignity, prepared to learn, play and thrive.
Since 2007, Rack Room Shoes has raised over $13.3 million and has provided over 465,000 children with new shoes and within the last year, have raised more than $1.73 million during its annual campaign.
Rack Room raises funds twice a year (holiday and back to school) through the campaign to provide new shoes to children in need within their partner school. Rack Room Shoes donates 100 percent of the proceeds to schools who identify children who need new footwear at their partner school.
This includes the Rack Room Shoes locations across the Outer Banks.
Starting July 6 through September 4, 2023, the proceeds collected at any Rack Room location will help make a difference in the lives of little ones across the local community.
