Shoes in Delaware

Longtime Volunteer, Joanne Glauser, Shares Her Story

Joanne has been volunteering with Shoes That Fit for over 25 years – bringing shoes to children in her home state of Delaware. She shares her reasons for giving back and how it's not really about shoes at all.

“If you’re in corporate America and feel like you aren’t making an impact, take those skills and put them to use for a cause! It’s work that fills your heart.”
