Help Brown County kids put their Best Foot Forward this new school year!

Brown County United Way, Green Bay Area Public School district and Howe Community Resource Center are partnering on a shoe drive that will help kids put their best foot forward for the 2021 school year! This collaboration will provide elementary kids (ages 5-12 years) with a new pair of shoes to start the school year or to replace during the school year. Many children go without adequate footwear or are unable to purchase quality shoes. We are looking for good-quality new shoes that kids will be excited to wear and give them a running start to the school year!

You can support by donating new shoes in sizes:

  • Kids, size 10 through 6 youth and/or
  • Up to adult size 9

All shoes can be dropped off at the Howe Community Resource Center (526 S Monroe St.), Monday – Friday, 9:00 am-4:00 pm. Donations of new only shoes will be accepted now through Friday, August 20, 2021.

We will need volunteers to help with the sorting of the shoe donations. Volunteer days will occur on Monday, August 23 and Tuesday, August 24, 2021. Stayed tuned for more details on our websites, and social media.

This initiative complements the Howe Community Resource Center “Hand-Up” clothing drive for Howe Community School students and Brown County students. Students that are registered will receive a new outfit to start the school year. To receive items, registration is required for each child. Registration is open now until August 2, 2021. Please click here to register.

For more information, visit: Brown County United Way

Additionally, the Back to School supply distribution for Brown County children is facilitated by Service League Green Bay. Service League Green Bay will provide children with a backpack, and school supplies.

What a great trio of resources for area families! We greatly appreciate Breakthrough Fuel for their sponsorship of additional shoes for the Best Foot Forward shoe drive!
