Steven Wise Temple in Los Angeles, CA is one of the largest Jewish Congregations in the country and one of the oldest chapters of Shoes That Fit. When asked why the Temple had been with Shoes That Fit for so long, Jennifer Smith, Programming and Social Justice Coordinator was quick to answer, “It’s one of the best examples of a project that anyone can participate in from preschoolers, to empty-nesters to seniors. Even the youngest kids understand that shoes are fundamental and that even they can do something to make a difference.”
The Des Moines, IA office of On Media has been a huge force for Shoes That Fit in Des Moines, and Vice-President and General Manager, Bob Montgomery (Center right), his staff, and his wife, Regina are the people that make it happen. On Media runs ads, holds golf tournaments, and reaches out to the greater Des Moines community every year to raise money and shoes. The cable ad sales company has helped tens of thousands of kids in need in the Des Moines area since they started in 2002.
