Is there really a need for gym shoes? YES- Information gathered from both Cass County, North Dakota and Clay County, Minnesota estimate there are over 8000 children living in or below the poverty level. Most of those families live on incomes between $5,000-10,000 for a family of 4. Most children are living in single family dwellings. Many have never received new shoes prior to Happy Feet. What is Happy Feet? We are a youth 4H charity run by kids located in Georgetown, Minnesota (population 300). We serve Fargo-Moorhead, Halstad, and Dilworth-Glyndon-Felton areas - over 23 schools. We are not a big corporation- we are just everyday kids with big hearts. We are as young as 6 and as old as 18 years of age. We appreciate donations of new or used gym shoes or money or in-kind office equipment, or stationery . We are a 501C non-profit. Any questions, contact 218-233-8066, or explore our website at 4H Happyfeet.com or email at nthomas8@juno.com or snail mail Happy Feet, Box 193, Georgetown, Minnesota 56546.
Thank yous to Happy Feet: "It's nice to know that somebody who doesn't know you, would care enough to help you." -Mother of child receiving shoes
"It is nice not to be left out playing with the other kids. Thank you." -Samantha, Recipient of shoes
"I appreciate the help. Sometimes I am so busy with other gym kids and running the class that I have little time to help these kids. Other than Happy Feet, there is no support to help get shoes for these kids." -Phy.Ed. teacher
"I would like to extend our sincere thanks to all of you who participated and delivered the new shoes for children. Your kindness was felt and seen on every child's face when they received their new shoes. The 4-H shoes that were donated helped the children with a basic necessity that is often overlooked." -YWCA Shelter
