20 Year Partnership - Still Running Strong!
A Heartfelt Thank You to Shoe Carnival
The partnership between our Steps to Success program and Shoe Carnival began over 20 years ago. Shoe Carnival has helped us provide shoes and socks to thousands of deserving St. Louis area children.
From the beginning, Shoe Carnival store managers have donated countless hours helping our volunteers pack, sort, label and distribute thousands of shoes.

A special thank you to Shoe Carnival store manager Katie Junge, who in recent years, has donated innumerable hours to Steps to Success.
