Sneakers with Soul works with local social service agencies, such as LifeWise Stl and Epworth Children and Family Services, as well as area school districts to identify and properly fit children and youth that will be the recipients of quality brand name sneakers. Parents and guardians of the children/youth who receive the new sneakers pay nothing for the new sneakers that they receive.
