Kicks for GetUp Kids: THANK YOU!

Ramiro, Pebbles, and Melissa delivered an early holiday present to over 150 homeless families at Horizons for Homeless Children this week, thanks to all of your generous sneaker donations!

Last month, we asked for your help to put brand-new sneakers on the feet of homeless children across Boston. Not only did we reach our goal of donated sneakers, but we were also able to give each child new socks, as well as additional sneakers for their siblings and parents. In addition to cash donations, over 500 pairs of shoes and 800 pairs of socks were donated.

Seeing the smile on the faces of these families was priceless, and we cannot thank our amazing listeners enough for all of your help. We could not have done this without you and we are already looking forward to doing it all again next year! Be sure to check out all the photos from our Kicks for GetUp Kids event below!

A huge thank you to our presenting sponsor, PUMA, for giving us a head start with a donation of 300 pairs of sneakers, as well as our partners, Roxbury Prep and Empire Loan.

If you would still like to send some love to Horizons for Homeless Children during the holiday season, you can donate directly through their site HERE!
