Walk In Their Shoes is on a mission. We want to raise awareness for high-risk shelters in the Lubbock area, and assist children in these shelters by giving them new clothes and athletic gear. At-risk children are often given old clothes and other items, making it difficult to build confidence and self-esteem. It is time to change this throughout the South Plains, as well as in our state and nation. To “be the change” in this situation, WiTS does four primary things:

  • We raise funds and awareness for high-risk youth in the Lubbock area.

  • We partner with top brands to provide children with new clothes that they will feel proud to wear.

  • We give at-risk youth new clothes and athletic gear for school, and conduct other giving events throughout the year.

  • We partner with homeless child outreach programs in our area. This year our schools have registered 600 homeless children. We are reaching out to find and provide assistance to this vulnerable population.

In just under a year, we have partnered with a variety of organizations, including Under Armour, BSN Sports, Glyder Apparel, and Melrose.

As a nonprofit in Lubbock County, we see the daily struggle of children in need of assistance. We have been aware of the work of Walk In Their Shoes since January of 2017. Their positive impact on young lives is truly inspirational.

Walk in Their Shoes Duffel Bag Campaign

Walk in Their Shoes is currently raising funds for an important new project.

In our recent work with homeless and high-risk children in the South Plains area, we noticed that many children carry their belongings from place to place in a trash bag. We heard countless stories of kids who feel that carrying their belongings in trash bags makes them feel “worthless” and that their “things are trash.”

We want to change this status quo. To do this, we have developed a patent-pending duffel bag that can be used by these children in unstable situations. We will give these bags to children in the South Plains area to help them better carry their belongings.

This duffel bag will also be able to be converted into a backpack with a four harness system that will adjust to kids’ height and size. In addition, a four-inch hidden lower level insulated expansion will be included for food and snacks for situations in which food instability may be an issue. This bag will be treated with a liquid and dirt resistant product to ensure it looks good for years to come.

We are currently at 60% of our $20,000 dollar goal! Donate today to help us help more children in our area.
