Nordstrom has launched its annual campaign with the nonprofit Shoes That Fit. Nordstrom has been able to offer over 240,000 shoes in the form of new, well-fitted shoes to children in need within its local communities for the past 11 years. Nordstrom partnered up with Shoes That Fit to provide affordable footwear for students.
“Each fall, our customers and employees look forward to the chance to help students across the country start school on the right foot with a pair of new sneakers,” said Scott Meden, chief marketing officer at Nordstrom, in a statement. “We are thankful to have played a small role in helping students return to school, many of whom will be returning for the first time since 2020.”
“This year with Nike as the exclusive shoe partner, Nordstrom has committed to helping more than 25,000 kids start the school year right with a pair of brand-new and properly fitting Nike sneakers. We are thrilled to be able to offer these high-quality sneakers for kids to feel confident, comfortable, and ready to learn as they start school.”
From August 16 through September 19, customers can donate to the Shoes That Fit campaign in one of three ways through visiting any U.S. Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, Nordstrom Local store, Nordstrom.com or NordstromRack.com and purchasing a 10 dollar Shoes That Fit giving card, adding a donation when they check out at Nordstrom.com, or making an online, tax-deductible donation at shoesthatfit.org/Nordstrom. All giving cards and donations go directly toward Shoes that Fit who will provide new Nike sneakers to kids in need.
