Sleep Country Foster Kids Shoe Drive


Sleep Country believes all children should have the freedom to run, jump and walk with confidence. But too often, foster children end up wearing shoes that are too small, worn out and uncomfortable. The good news is we can help! Bring your donation of new shoes  in any size — from toddler to teen — to a Sleep Country location near you, and help a local foster child walk with confidence! Or donate online today, and the shopping will be done on your behalf.
