New School shoes for James who loves helping others

Posted Aug 3, 2023
James is one of 9 siblings. He has not had a new pair of shoes in quite some time and is desperate need of a pair. He is often teased at school due to his outdated and worn attire. Yet, he still remains upbeat and is always willing to lend a helping hand to others. Having a new pair of cool, comfortable shoes would boost James' confidence as he strives to excel academically and athletically this school year.

James is 13 years old and lives in LA

James is a very pleasant and respectful young man who loves school. He has 8 siblings who he loves dearly. His favorite subject is English. He plays football and basketball and recently made the track team. What makes him so special is passion to help others. He touches everyone he encounters. He wants to be a professional athlete when he grows up.
