Join Samaritan's Feet

Give New Shoes to Children in Knott County

Help us provide a new pair of athletic shoes to students and families of Emmalena Elementary. Families in this rural Eastern Kentucky town were greatly impacted by the flooding that occurred in 2022, and are still feeling its effects. Let’s join together to give new shoes, a message of encouragement, and a glimmer of hope. Your donation of just $25 will help us serve a child!

About Samaritan's Feet

Samaritan’s Feet is a non-profit organization that serves and inspires hope in children by providing shoes as the foundation to a spiritual and healthy life resulting in the advancement of education and economic opportunities. Over 30 years ago, a boy in Nigeria, Manny Ohonme, received his first pair of shoes at the age of nine. That simple gifted prompted him to play basketball and follow his dreams, ultimately earning him a college basketball scholarship in the United States. A pair of shoes changed his life. So in 2003, Manny and his wife Tracie, started Samaritan’s Feet with a goal of giving hope through the gift of shoes.
