2016 Put Your Best Foot Forward – Annual Back to School Shoe Giveaway
September 17, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
The Annual Back-To-School Shoe Giveaway “Put Your Best Foot Forward” returns on Saturday, September 17, 2016 at Oracle Arena and Oakland Alameda Coliseum
FAME, in partnership with Oracle Arena and Oakland Alameda Coliseum, will provide free new shoes to 2,500 low-income K-12th grade students across Alameda County. 5,000 attendees will receive resources from a wealth of community and non-profit organizations on healthy lifestyle, wellness programs, screening & vaccinations, prizes, music, games and lunch. Over the past 19 years, FAME has distributed over 15,000 shoes to students returning to school.
Last year, 2,250 free new pairs of shoes were distributed to low- income K-12th grade students across Alameda County. 5,000 people enjoyed a safe afternoon filled with community and health resources as well as family oriented activities. This year, we plan to distribute 2,500 free new pairs of shoes and backpacks, along with other surprises to deserving students. And with your support, we will reach this goal!
The free shoes are on a first come-first serve basis dependent on family income.
