SNEAKERS ARE AN OPPORTUNITY
At Pasos, new stylish sneakers are an opportunity to increase confidence and academic achievement. Children with worn-out shoes are more likely to experience bullying, isolation, and low morale. Our shoe drives intentionally target children from families experiencing temporary financial hardships or that are unhoused.
Our handpicked stylish shoes help student feel ready to learn.

HOW IT WORKS
Although we provide shoes year round in the Dallas-Fort Worth region, the bulk of our shoes are given out in sneaker drives. One is hosted before back to school and the second is hosted before Christmas.
We partner with local schools, community members, homeless shelters, nonprofits etc. to identify the students that need our assistance.
Due to our small size, every year there is a waitlist.
