EVENT: Agents of Change 2016
One day, a few years ago, a staff member at Heals, Inc. noticed that many of the children were wearing shoes too small, too large, or in such poor condition they were unfit to wear to school. Now, not only does HEALS provide children with a free and caring medical home, they give away a brand new pair of athletic shoes to every child that visits the clinics for their yearly well-child checkup.
Though it might be easy for some of us to take such items for granted, never underestimate the power of new, warm socks and shoes. Beyond the bright smile and boost in confidence a new pair of shoes presents in kids, “Heels for HEALS” also serves as a much-needed incentive for the parents to bring their children to this important yearly visit.
We invite you to join us on our mission to provide children in our community with shoes, socks and more!
