Gimme-Some-Sole Shoe Drive

Gimme-Some-Sole Shoe Drive

This program helps hundreds of school age kids in our community. Each year Azad's Martial Arts Center spearheads a community-wide effort to help kids from low income families with much needed shoes and rainboots. The goal is to collect as many brand new shoes as we can for all kids specially those who come from families who aren't able to provide their children with basic needs. Azad's Martial Arts Center purchases and collects hundreds of pairs of shoes each year for children in our community so they can walk to school and home knowing their feet won't get wet and their health get compromised in winter season.

"The most exciting part of life is when we practice compassion and help others in need." Grandmaster. This is a great opportunity for you to teach your children the significant of giving back and practicing kindness. Just like a muscle in our body, the more we use compassion the more we create a powerful sense of kindness. Please join us in this annual drive to help children enjoy their education and school.
