A Message From Our Founders
"Today was the last donation of 2015-16 school year for The MetroShoe Project. It was another wonderful success. We provided brand New footwear to over 3,000 kids. Today may have been the most amazing display of selfless people from our community who took time out of their days to help in the "shoeing" of Wheeler Elementary. Employees of NewsOK-The Oklahoman, Prosperity Bank, Oklahoma City Public Schools, Cleats4Kids, Therapy Boutique and of course MetroShoe Warehouse.
With all of the help we were able to sit & fit 541 kids with new shoes. All in less than two hours! What an amazing group of people.
Jason Parks, Erin Byers Turner, Zac Webb and I want to thank each and everyone of you that has helped over the past 5 years. I would tag you all but I'm not sure FB would let me.
It's not easy and is a lot of work, but I truly believe we are making a positive impact on others. I sometimes wonder if I don't get more from it personally than the kids.
An additional thank you to all who support MetroShoe Warehouse which provides us the funds to continue The MetroShoe Project!"
-Heath Martin, Vice President of MetroShoe Warehouse
The MetroShoe Project is a [501-3 (c)] non-profit organization founded by MetroShoe Warehouse. Established in July of 2012, in an effort to give back to the community that has supported our retail stores for over 15 years. In September 2012, The MetroShoe Project donated 1,000+ pairs of shoes to local children in need. We are so happy to provide this footwear to the youth of Oklahoma City.
In May of 2013, our state was struck by devastating tornadoes. It occurred to us that our community was in need of assistance that only we could provide. Less than 24 hours after the horrific tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma we were onsite and prepared to put footwear and dry socks on as many victims as possible. A week later we donated over 1500 pairs of shoes. Since that time we have had countless vendors team up with us to give back. Quicksilver, Volcom, Roxy, and Clarks have all donated footwear and apparel to help the families in Oklahoma.
