Rack Room Helps Kids in Need

NEW YORK — Rack Room Shoes is partnering with Shoes That Fit in an effort to provide children with a new pair of shoes.

The charitable organization helps build the self-esteem of elementary school children by providing them with new shoes and other clothing items. It pairs businesses, colleges and community service groups with children identified by local schools as being in need.

Charlotte, N.C.-based Rack Room will be using donations from its Finders Keepers key finders (key hooks that attached to a bag) program, available through its network of stores, to fund the venture.
