Steps to Success

Steps to Success provides public school students with new athletic shoes and socks.

Helping Students in the Classroom

Recognizing that shoes are an essential to daily activity, we give good supportive athletic shoes to any child in one of our 42 partner schools who is identified with the need.

  • Our members go to each of our schools, measure the children’s feet and give them an opportunity to choose from a variety of shoes.
  • Each student is given three pairs of socks at the time of measurement and shoes are delivered to the school within a few weeks.
  • In 2022, over 3,500 shoes were given to those in need. Investing in the youth of St. Louis is a fundamental element of our mission.

Schools interested in participating may submit an application form.
