FAMOUS FOOTWEAR GOES THE EXTRA STEP FOR FOSTER KIDS

Famous Footwear believes that everyone, especially kids, deserve to experience the confidence that comes from a new pair of shoes. We all deserve to Feel a Little Famous. In partnership with the Ticket to Dream Foundation, Famous Footwear is helping foster youth feel famous, too.

As the official national charity partner of Famous Footwear, together we engage Famous Footwear employees, customers and vendors to work together to improve the lives and futures of foster kids of all ages, nationwide. Whether that’s lacing up new kicks, having essentials on hand to improve their experience in care, helping them catch up in school, reducing their odds of future homelessness or even celebrating the joy of the holidays.

Since Famous Footwear’s foster kids program launched in 2020 donations have reached over 177,000 foster youth. But they aren’t done yet. In 2021 donations continue to support youth across the country and they are inviting current and former foster youth to build employment skills by joining the Famous Footwear team. If you are a teen or young adult that has experienced foster care, kinship care, or adoption from care please visit jobs.famous.com and select Foster Care community in the drop down.

Customers can help by visiting a Famous store to make a donation, round up your purchase in-store or donate online at tickettodream.org/famous.
