A New Pair of Shoes for Matthew who loves to be with friends

Posted Mar 11, 2019
Matthew would like a pair of checkered Van sneakers. He has recently started to care about his appearance and has been spending a bit more time picking out his outfits, he thinks a pair of black and white checkered Vans would be a nice addition to his wardrobe.

Matthew is 10 years old and lives in Beaumont, CA

Matthew is an amazing young man who's favorite thing about school this year is all the new friends he’s made and his teacher. Matt likes to spend his free time riding his bike, playing basketball or just hanging out with his friends. When Matthew grows up he would like to be a pilot and fly commercial airplanes all over the world!

"Hi, Matthew. My name is Alan; my wife and I have been foster parents for a few years. In fact, we adopted our son, Jai, from foster care last year. He's 7 and he likes good shoes, too, so when he saw your wish, he said he wanted to take care of it for you. Enjoy your Vans -- we're sure you'll look great! :)"
