Sneakers For Soldiers.

It's The Holidays and the season to give, but contributing to our Troops should be year-round.

SFS, I think, is doing God's work. I know finances for many people are tough right now, but footwear for our Troops is important. SFS will accept any amount.

I'm not affiliated or connected to SFS or their supplier, Bryn Mawr Running Company, in any way nor am I receiving any type of compensation or gratuity for promoting this cause. 

Click the Sneakers For Soldiers banner to learn more about them.

This is from the FAQ section of Sneakers For Soldiers:

What is Sneakers for Soldiers' mission?

The mission of Sneakers for Soldiers, Inc. is to provide properly fitted athletic shoes to deployed combat troops.  Sneakers for Soldiers supports all branches of the military and prioritizes shipments to troops in Hostile Fire/ Imminent Danger Areas and Designated Combat Zones, that are in need of replacing their worn out sneakers.

Are all branches of the military supported by your program?

Yes, as long as the troops are deployed to Imminent Danger Areas and Designated Combat Zones where the impact to morale and physical well-being of the sneaker support is significant.

Does the Military provide sneakers for deployed soldiers?

The US Military has recognized the fact that sneakers are an essential item for soldiers and they are in the early stages of providing athletic shoes to new service members (recruits)However, deployed soldiers are currently not beneficiaries of this new program.  Sneakers for Soldiers offers us all the opportunity to show our support for our deployed troops and to do so in a way that is practical and furthers the current efforts of the US Military.

What is unique about your program?

The uniqueness of our program is that the soldiers are able to select the brand and style that best fits their feet and needs from 9 high quality athletic shoes. Ordering is customized for each soldier.  We then purchase the sneakers at a generous discount, through monetary donations that we receive.

How many sneaker styles do you offer?

We currently offer nine styles of popular brands of sneakers that were based on the recommendations of deployed soldiers.  These high-quality sneakers are durable and built to hold up in extreme temperatures, harsh environments, rugged terrain, and daily exercise.

Can we send sneakers to you?

We do not accept sneakers (in kind donations) Why not? Because each soldier chooses the brand and style of sneaker that is best for their feet and needs.  All feet are different. All needs are different.

How much does a pair of sneakers cost?

Our average cost is $75 (retail: $130 – $145). Our shoe supplier, Bryn Mawr Running Company, provides sneakers to us at a deeply discounted rate, effectively at cost. Your donation buys the soldiers more shoe per dollar than if you bought a pair of sneakers on your own due to the discount that we receive from Bryn Mawr Running Company.

How much does it cost to ship sneakers?

Shipping costs depend on the size and weight of box – average $9/pair.

What if I want to donate less than the cost of a sneaker?

EVERY donation helps to purchase sneakers for our soldiers – EVERY dollar is appreciated.

Will a soldier know I helped purchase a sneaker?

To further personalize the gift, every pair of sneakers will have a tag attached with a donor’s first name/state or organization’s name/state to show a soldier that you care.

Does Sneakers for Soldiers have employees?

No, we are 100% volunteer.  All our board members are donors and volunteers.

Footwear is such a critical item for everyone, if your feet are hurting, it really affects how your entire body feels. Now, imagine a deployed Soldier opening your gift of of Sneakers for them.

If you'd rather send a check or M.O. instead of donating by credit card, you can:

Please make all check donations out to“Sneakers for Soldiers“

One would think with all the BILLIONS of Dollars the U.S. has given to Ukraine TPTB running this shithole called the "Biden Administration" could allocate a few million for SFS, but no.

If you're able to contribute a few dollars to SFS, know that it will be appreciated.

Matthew 6:1-2 (NLT)

1 "Be careful not to perform your righteous acts before men to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven. 2 So when you give to the needy, do not sound a trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by men. Truly I tell you, they already have their full reward.…"

Please consider donating to what is a very worthy mission.
