Guests at this event mixer will include the organization’s staff and coordinators, Academy general manager and store manager, and evolve FCU’s marketing team.

What sparked A Shoe Story donation event? In taking a tour at one of the children’s organizations, they mentioned to evolve FCU that the facial expression a child has when they open a new pair of shoes is priceless. Wearing a new pair of shoes was a way for the kids to break them in and gain a sense of empowerment, encouragement, and the opportunity to create their own new paths! This is how A Shoe Story was born.

This is a private event, but the media is invited to attend the donation mixer event for story coverage.
