Happy Feet

More than 275 underprivileged Sumter children receive a free pair of shoes each fall as part of the “Happy Feet” program

The Rotary Club of Sumter Palmetto and the Sumter Rotary Club ask guidance counselors at each of the 16 elementary schools in Sumter School District to submit the names of 10 students who deserve a free pair of shoes.

Once selected, parents are sent a voucher form to take to a designated shoe store to redeem for a pair of shoes with a $30 limit. Participants can pay the difference if the shoes they select are more than $30.
