A pair of school shoes for Zuri who will join the ranks of second graders

Posted Aug 7, 2023
Zuri is super excited to head back to school as a second grader! She had an awesome summer and even grew a little taller. It's crazy how much kids can grow in just a few months! Unfortunately, most of her school shoes from last year don't fit anymore. It would be such a sweet gesture to surprise her with a new pair of shoes to kick off the school year on the right foot.

Zuri is 7 years old and lives in VA

Zuri is a happy, playful and loving girl who is currently living in a foster home without her two siblings. Zuri loves music and dance and has not allowed being placed in foster to stop her from being a very happy little girl. Zuri loves animals and likes to take the family dog out for walks. She has made lots of new friends in her new school. Zuri's favorite colors are purple, pink, and orange. She loves dolls and likes to play dress up. Zuri loves to dance and draw pictures. One of her drawings has been hung up in the Main Library.
