For the past several years, the Kids Helping Kids organization has hosted an annual one-day pop-up shoe store, providing thousands of free shoes to those in the community. But this year, although the shoes will still go, the store will be here to stay.

Kelly Sapio, Development Director at KHK, says the new permanent shoe closet, located in a refurbished space on the Yerwood Center’s stage, will be open to the public year-round; a big improvement from the one-day store held at Inspirica in previous years.

On Monday, KHK held a special open house for Martin Luther King Day, giving away thousands of shoes along with coats. Sapio says KHK and the Yerwood Center make a great partnership.

KHK has given away more than 20,000 pairs of shoes to date. The organization is now working on completing a permanent woman and children’s clothing store at the Yerwood Center. To find out more, visit
