What We Do

Our Shoes

Why New Shoes?

67% of children wear shoes that don't fit, as families with limited budgets struggle to afford proper footwear.

Proper fitting shoes are fundamental to a child's health and well-being. When we asked our beneficiary organizations what resources they needed most, we had an overwhelming response for shoes. This is why, in 2021, we expanded our mission to provide brand-new shoes that do more than help kids run and play; they provide them with the support and confidence they need to succeed.

The Impact of New Shoes

Operation Warm has provided over 200,000 pairs of shoes to children in need.

"The shoes were excellent quality and totally adorable, and the cute things kids do in new shoes (the dancing, jumping and running) bring a smile to the faces of staff and families alike."

- Martha, Shoe Beneficiary Organization Director
