Since 2008 Choose To Care(CTC) has been fulfilling its mission by providing a brand new pair of shoes for the child in need, globally. The nonprofit has also provided shoes for public schools through Donors Choose(donors choose.org), a teacher founded nonprofit that accepts classroom requests for project funding from teachers across the country.
Since the pandemic, CTC has stepped up its goal to sponsor a public school each month and has been able to do so. Of course there is no magic wand to make the decision of which requests will be next, especially when the need is so great; but some thought is put into which project gets picked, most of the times cost is a factor.
This time "Soles for Souls" caught my eyes. The gym teacher, Coach Craven at Dooley Elementary School, Plano, submitted a project for her grades 3-5 students. She too had the desire and dream to start a nonprofit organization to provide shoes for the students in need, so they can live a healthy and active lifestyle.
This is CTC's choice for the month of July. We applaud you for your commitment to the children you serve. We will keep taking steps to reach a world where each child has the resources they need to succeed. Of course we are not there yet!
