OnMedia is proud to announce the start of their annual Shoes That Fit Campaign, a national program aimed at providing shoes to children in need at the beginning of the school year. OnMedia has partnered with Shoes that Fit, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, since 2004, working with schools in Santa Rosa County to provide new shoes to children in need throughout the district, including schools in Gulf Breeze, Navarre, Milton and Pace.
The mission of Shoes That Fit is to provide new shoes to children in need so they can attend school in comfort and with dignity, better prepared to learn and play. They believe that every child deserves shoes that fit, which allows the child to focus on their studies rather than their circumstances.
For the 2013 Campaign, OnMedia will partner with several local businesses to host events, promotions and serve as drop off points for community donations. OnMedia is looking forward to continued success with support from the community.
Through the help of local businesses, who volunteer store space, time and monetary efforts, OnMedia was able to collect and distribute over 350 pairs of shoes to local children in 2012 and are looking to increase to 450 pairs for the 2013 Shoe Drive.
