Shoes for School in-Kind Donations

The Knoxville Area Urban League greatly depends on your generous in-kind donations to guarantee the success of the 2024 Shoes for School event. We require an array of items such as shoes for students, assorted school supplies, bookbags, Chromebook sleeves, and durable backpacks suitable for students ranging from Kindergarten to middle school. Your contribution will not only provide essential resources but also nurture a child's self-esteem, laying a solid foundation for their academic success.
NOTE: Shoe donations are currently accepted exclusively from commercial distributors. We are actively pursuing discounted bulk rates to procure high-quality shoes suitable for children aged 5 to 12.
