Pinnacle Housing Group, LLC and Shoes That Fit recently visited South Miami Heights Elementary on December 7th to distribute brand new athletic shoes to 211 students. Receiving a new pair of shoes can be life-changing for students. School attendance, self-esteem, and behavior improve. Physical activity increases. Smiles return. All from an often over-looked item – a good pair of shoes.
“Pinnacle is proud to partner with Shoes That Fit to deliver new shoes to over 200 deserving kids in the South Miami Heights community. This is the second year Pinnacle has worked with the amazing team at South Miami Heights Elementary as part of our continued commitment to rejuvenating local communities through important initiatives. A good pair of shoes goes a long way and we’re excited to send kids into the new year with new shoes on their feet and smiles on their faces.” JENNIFER SANZ – VP, Development Programs, Pinnacle Housing Group
“The simple gift of new athletic shoes can be a new lease on life for a child, allowing them to attend school, interact more positively with their teachers and peers, and participate in sports and other physical activities. We’re so happy to be able to help more kids learn, play, and thrive!” AMY FASS – CEO and Executive Director, Shoes That Fit
