West Virginia's Helping is a non-profit coporation founded in 1999 by Pamela E. Lindsay and Richard D. Lindsay for the purpose of enhancing the educational experience of children in West Virginia through various programs.
For the past 20 years, West Virginia’s Helping has provided new shoes to students in Kanawha and Putnam Counties. Our programs are cost effective with 100% of contributions allocated towards helping kids. No one with our organization is paid. Each year we are humbled by your extreme generosity and understanding of what a new pair of shoes can mean to a student and family. Amid a worldwide pandemic the need this year is greater than ever and we appreciate your donation.
Many of the kids West Virginia's Helping assists only have one pair of shoes. Their shoes are worn out, handed down, too big or too small, and even held together by tape. In addition to shoes each shoe box is filled with socks, toys, school supplies, personal hygiene items, books, and in some cases when needed, a coat and winter clothing.
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to assist us in helping to make a positive difference in these children's lives. When students receive new shoes that fit properly, you are also giving them a sense of hope, dignity, and joy. We are a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization
Again, thank you for your help, in making a difference in the areas in which we live and work.
We only accept shoe requests through schools. Also, please understand, that we currently do not have the resources to help with utilities or rent assistance.
