SHOES Program from In the Image

Introducing the SHOES Program (Shoes Help Our Elementary Students):

  • The SHOES program aims to provide a healthy start to the school year by equipping elementary students (K-5th grade) with brand-new athletic shoes.
  • In The Image understands the financial strain that families often face during back-to-school preparations. SHOES helps alleviate part of this burden by ensuring that every child in Kent County has access to quality footwear.
  • With comfortable athletic shoes, students can concentrate better in class, run faster on the playground, jump higher during gym class, and play harder in sports activities.
  • This program is in its 28th year in Kent County and growing!  We're hoping to serve over 4,000 Kent County Students who will be entering Kindergarten - 5th grade in the fall of 2024.
