Samaritan's Feet is an organization that donates shoes to those in need. 

This year in Concord, NC will mark the 6th Annual Back-to-School Distribution. Samaritan's Feet hopes to donate 500 pairs of shoes, on top of other school supplies such as backpacks, pencils, and more. In order to reach this goal, $9,000 needs to be raised. 

This organization has paired with Cabarrus county since 2012, ultimately aiming to provide supplies and shoes for youth in the area before school is in session.
