Hope For Youth

Payless Gives, Again

HFY children and teens enjoy new shoes, valuable shopping experience


Hope For Youth recently had the honor of accepting a grant from Payless Gives which supported the purchase of much-needed shoes for many of our residents.  Year after year, Payless Gives – the product donation program of retailer Payless Shoesource –  has awarded HFY  with donations in the form of gift cards utilized by children and teens in our care.


We are thankful to the employees of two local Payless locations who graciously and enthusiastically helped our children through the entire purchase process.  This event enabled the youth to gain new financial literacy knowledge and experiences. 


Shoes weren’t the only valuable items that the kids took home.  Along with new kicks and the real-life experience, dozens of young people went home with a renewed sense of self.


Thank you to Payless Gives for hosting and sponsoring these special invaluable shopping sprees!
