One City Columbus: Destination for Impact

Give Hope and New Shoes to Children and Seniors in Columbus

In 2023, Samaritan’s Feet served over 3,500 children, adults, and Seniors in Columbus through One City Columbus initiative. We want to continue the impact in 2024 with a goal of funding and distributing new shoes to an additional 2,000 children, adults, and Seniors in the Columbus area through multiple activations.

YOU can help us do that—we need to raise approximately $70,000 to host multiple One City Columbus distributions. 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.

Would you consider donating to help make One City Columbus possible?

Promote independence because Seniors can move safely around.


Encourage unity within Columbus as different leaders and organizations serve the community together.


Give children the chance to be confident and comfortable while in school.

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.
