The KICS - Kids in Cool Shoes KICS program is a project of The Junior League of Austin, which provides area children in need with a new pair of well-fitting sneakers, allowing them to be healthy, comfortable, and participate in physical activity. With the help of KICS, kids won’t have to sit on the sidelines during sports, or rely on too-small, worn-out, or hand-me-down shoes to run and play on the playground. Every kid deserves a pair of shoes that fit!

Your donation to KICS is an investment in the healthy future of underserved school-aged children. Studies show being given a pair of new shoes improves school attendance by 44%, participation in physical activity by 72%, and classroom behavior by 63%. One hundred percent of your donation will go directly to program support for KICS.
