2023 ‘Two Good Soles Shoes & Socks Drive Underway
Slash away stumbling blocks preventing student success! The 8th annual Two Good Soles Shoes and Socks Drive is underway with Pasco County Government and Constitutional offices working together to collect footwear for kids in Pasco County Schools through October 11, 2023.
“It’s not just about providing a new pair of shoes and socks to each child in need,” said Pasco County Support Services Director Paula Baracaldo. “It’s about giving them a sense of dignity and security. It’s about enabling Pasco County school children to focus on things other than basic needs.”
In 2022, we collected nearly 3,000 pairs of shoes and more than 5,000 pairs of socks! Since 2016, the ‘Two Good Soles’ event has collected 15,142 pairs of shoes and 39,762 pairs of socks. Social workers distribute the items to Pasco students.
Types of new shoes and socks to consider donating include:
- Children’s shoes sizes 9 and up
- Adult shoes in all sizes
- Socks in all sizes / neutral colors
- Closed-toe shoes / no flip flops
All new shoes and socks will be donated to Pasco County Schools at the end of October.
