Famous Footwear says Ticket to Dream will be the shoe brand’s official national charity partner. Ticket to Dream helps give foster children in the U.S. item such as school supplies, holiday gifts, properly fitting clothes and shoes.
 
“Working with the Famous Footwear team to develop a unique program that engages customers, inspires employees and brings much-needed resources to foster kids across the country, quite simply will change lives and leave a lasting impression with every step,” says Gina Davis, executive director of Ticket to Dream Foundation. “Now more than ever, we need to ensure these youth do not get left behind in school, helping them feel self-confident, and confident they have the essentials – like new shoes and school supplies – to be like every other child.”
 
This multi-year partnership between Famous Footwear and Ticket to Dream includes:

  • Famous Footwear previously donating over 12,000 new pairs of shoes in August to foster children in the U.S. to help them prepare for back-to-school season.

  • Customers at Famous Footwear can donate at the register when shopping in-store and have the possibility to round up to the nearest dollar or other amounts based on their preference.

  • While donations are collected, both Famous Footwear and Ticket to Dream are supplying back-to-school and other essentials through the fall season to foster children.

  • Supporters of the charity can also make additional donations online at the website linked here.

 
“Together, we plan to engage employees, customers, and vendors to work together to improve the lives and futures of foster kids of all ages,” says Molly Adams, president of Famous Footwear. “Whether that’s lacing up a new pair of kicks, having essential care items on hand, equipping them with school essentials or celebrating the joy of the holidays. These efforts are just the beginning, and we look forward to working with Ticket to Dream and all of their partners to help these extraordinary kids feel Famous.”
