The Dancing Shoes Project

The Dancing Shoes Project is an excellent opportunity to assist the over 15,000 children in the Arizona foster care system. Many times a child is placed in a foster home with only the clothes on their back and little hope of stability.

The Dancing Shoes Project is an opportunity to make a POSITIVE impact on a child in need with a new pair of shoes and fun socks. The participants are given a pair of shoes to decorate for a child in need. Each table is given a box of decorating supplies; Fabric Pens, a special shoe box that can be decorated for the child to keep their special shoes in, and a special note. Each pair of shoes will come with a pair of fun socks to be worn for those special occasions. The shoes will be for boys and girls and sized based on the needs of the charity.
