New shoes for Elijah who walks everywhere

Posted Jul 26, 2018
Elijah does a lot of walking around town. His current shoes are worn out and he needs a new pair. Elijah would love to be able to go to the store to pick out a nice, durable, comfortable pair of sneakers that he will be able to wear all year long.

Elijah is 18 years old and lives in McMinnville, OR

Elijah comes from a very large family. He is one of 8 siblings, whom were all taken into care when Elijah was just 6 years old. He has been in several homes in his past but landed in his forever home about 6 years ago and is going into a guardianship with his foster parents! Elijah has since been able to live with several of his biological siblings with this foster family and is able to have many natural supports and connections in his life. He enjoys watching tv, gaming, and doing activities with his boy scouts troop and youth group.
