Clark’s Nutrition Natural Foods Markets are known for their commitment to health and wellness. So last year, when they learned of Shoes That Fit’s programs, they saw an opportunity to help. After all, good shoes are critical to the health and wellness of a child. When children don’t have proper footwear, they can’t participate on the playground, take part in sports, and are often in physical pain due to shoes that just don’t fit.
That’s why last year Clark’s Nutrition provided new athletic shoes to children in-need attending Lugonia Elementary School in Redlands, CA. The program was such a success that Clark’s team members knew they would participate again.
In July, four Clark’s locations began collecting donations so they could surprise children in Chino with a gift of shoes. The campaign was a success, and 100 Children at Walnut Avenue Elementary in Chino were greeted with new athletic shoes, measured individually for the perfect fit. Clark’s was able to donate an additional 12 pairs of shoes to children through Olive Crest’s Wrap Around Program, which support’s families through coaching and mentorships.
Special thanks to Mike Barnett, Marketing Director at Clark’s Nutrition, for all his hard work organizing the fundraiser to support these students!
Clark’s Nutrition reminds us all that the key to healthy living requires nutrition, wellness, and shoes!
