Shoe Drive | Kicks for Kids

Last month, we partnered with Others of Destin, a local nonprofit dedicated to "standing in the gap" for low-income families and single moms who are often just one set-back away from hunger, or—even worse—homelessness.

Rather than implementing programs that medicate the symptoms of poverty, Others works with those in need to address the root of the problem: ensuring they have access to gainful employment, housing, food, and education.

Others believes in equipping the next generation to break the cycle of poverty that has oppressed these single moms and families, often for generations! And one of the best ways to do so is make sure that they're positioned to succeed in school. That's why we took the time to make sure their clothes matched their ambitions for a brighter, better future!
