KSAT Community Share the Shoes drive runs through November

Donate new shoes for boys and girls at SAPD substations

SAN ANTONIO – Shoes are a basic part of a child's wardrobe, yet for thousands of San Antonio children and teens, ill-fitting shoes can be a source of pain -- literally and emotionally.

KSAT12 is teaming up with the San Antonio Police Department and the nonprofit Zapatos, Inc. through November in KSAT Community's Share the Shoes drive.

Donate a new pair of shoes to a child in need at any of the six SAPD substations. Drop off bins will be located in the lobby area.

Donations of athletic shoes are preferred for young children and teens. Help us to beat last year's donation count of 1,100 pairs of shoes. Zapatos, Inc. will then distribute them to children in need of shoes.

Zapatos' mission is to serve all school-age boys and girls in the poorest communities and situations by providing footwear to those children who are in need.
