Shoes for Orphan Souls®, the largest humanitarian aid project of Buckner International, provides new shoes and socks to orphans and vulnerable children in the United States and throughout the world. From conducting shoe drives to humanitarian aid trips, Shoes for Orphan Souls offers hands-on opportunities to individuals, groups and organizations wanting to transform lives. Since 1999, more than 2.3 million pairs of new shoes and socks have been distributed to children in 74 countries.
Our mission at Shoes for Orphan Souls is to provide new shoes to the world’s 143 million orphans; to the vulnerable children living in families earning less than $1 a day; to the working poor in the United States who need shoes to send their children to school; and to the needy among us.
Our mission is to provide tangible service opportunities to people compelled to give. We want to share the blessing and reward of giving to others. Volunteers can donate shoes, host a shoe drive or travel with us to deliver the shoes – enriching their lives and the lives of others.
Our mission is to work together with like-minded organizations to ensure our shoes are given where needed most, when needed most and given repeatedly through long-term partnerships and alliances.
