New Kids Shoes for School Children in Fort Bend County TX

New Kids Shoes for School Children in Fort Bend County TX


I personally just heard of this wonderful program where Fort Bend County Texas Social Services “Walk with pride” program will provide to needy kids a brand new pair of shoes to start school. Anyone wanting to participate has to register at either of two Fort Bend locations. The registration started on June 1 and goes through July 31, 2012. Next year I will publish a blog about this program much earlier but there are still two days left.

There are criteria for qualifying for this program. A family has to have an income level at or below the 125 % of the poverty level guidelines. ( I do not know what this number is) Each child must be currently enrolled for the upcoming school year and be in grade levels from Pre-Kindergarten through 12 th grade. In addition each family will have to show the following items of proof to qualify:

1.     Parent’s identification.

2.     Proof of income showing the above percentage is being met. Current pay stubs for the last 30 days.

3.     Proof child will be in school for 2012-2013 school year.

4.     Relationship of child to adult has to be proven as either parent or legal guardian

5.     Special situation or do not understand requirements call them.

The applications will be accepted at: Rosenberg Office; 281-342-7300; 4520 Reading Rd. Suite A Rosenberg TX open Monday – Thursday 8 AM until PM and Friday 1 PM until 5 PM.

Missouri City office,; 281-403-8050; 303 Texas Parkway Suite 202 Missouri City open 8 AM till 5 PM but closed for lunch and Friday 1:30PM until 5 PM.

Shoes will be purchased at designated Payless Shoe Source stores and each child will be allowed to pick out their own pair of shoes for school.

Don’t waste time trying to research this program on their web site as this site and information is not very user friendly.
