Give Hope and New Shoes to Children and Seniors in Cincinnati

Samaritan’s Feet International is excited to announce we will be bringing hope through the gift of shoes to the Cincinnati community through events held in 2024. The goal for these One City Cincinnati events is to fund and distribute new shoes to 4,000 children and seniors in Cincinnati. Not only will this exciting event focus on giving new shoes and a message of hope, but also on bringing neighbors, religious leaders, community influencers, and public service personnel together to inspire empathy and unity.

In 2023, Samaritan’s Feet served over 1,000 children, adults, and seniors in Cincinnati. We want to continue the impact in 2024 with a goal of funding and distributing new shoes to an additional 4,000 children, adults, and Seniors in the Cincinnati area through multiple activations. YOU can help us do that—we need to raise approximately $140,000 to host these distributions in Cincinnati. We hope that you will choose to help us make these events a success. Together, we can continue to give HOPE to those in need in our city.

About Samaritan's Feet

Samaritan’s Feet is a non-profit organization that serves and inspires hope in people 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.
