Our annual Back-to-School Backpack Campaign kicks off July 1 and runs through July 23!

(Claremont, California—June 10, 2024)

Our Annual Backpack Campaign kicks off July 1 and runs through July 23.  Please consider donating to Shoes That Fit to help us get new sneakers to kids in need.  We want all kids to start the 2024/2025 school year off on the right foot.

The following businesses and organizations are participating in this campaign:

If you prefer to pick up a backpack and shop on your own, you can find them at the following locations in Claremont: Aromatique Skin and Body Care, Some Crust Bakery, Claremont Forum Bookshop, Claremont Concerts in the Park with the Claremont Kiwanis, and MPower.

Each backpack will have a tag attached with the shoe information for a child in need. Please purchase a brand-new pair of sneakers and socks, and return the filled backpack to the location where you picked it up. Backpacks should be returned no later than July 23.

If you have any questions, please call us at (909) 482-0050 and ask to speak to Kelly Reyna.
