Sneakers for Manny for his birthday

Posted Nov 13, 2023
Manny's birthday is coming up, and he really needs a new pair of shoes. Manny has recently been getting more independence from his current program and recently got two new jobs. He is planning on saving everything he makes from his new job so he can be fully prepared to live independently in the near future! We would like to surprise him on his birthday with a stylish new pair of shoes that he can wear both to work or on a daily basis!

Manny is 19 years old and lives in NJ

Manny is a hard-working young man who is preparing to live independently. Manny recently started working two jobs and is saving his money so he can successfully age out of foster care. He recently graduated from high school and is working hard to step down from his current program to finally be independent! Throughout the years, Manny has really matured and become a role model to other young men in his facility placement.
