Convoy of Hope Reported By: Convoy of Hope Program Updates, Program Updates Department Poster

In partnership with TOMS, Convoy of Hope has put new shoes on the feet of hundreds of thousands of people in the U.S. and around the world. In 2013, we selected TOMS for our Global Impact Award to celebrate their commitment to improving lives through business.

“TOMS and Convoy of Hope began as big ideas shared with friends that have since grown into tangible help for people around the word,” says Hal Donaldson, our president and co-founder. “It’s an honor to share this work and a privilege to present this award to TOMS.”

As part of their One for One ® model, for every product purchased, TOMS helps a person in need through partnerships with organizations like Convoy of Hope. We recently partnered with TOMS to give shoes, hygiene kits and a day of fun to Mt. Vernon elementary school students.

First grader, Gavin, tried on his new shoes then made his way to a special lunch put on by the community.

“It makes me feel good because if my parents don’t have that much money to buy new shoes for me, I can still get a new pair,” said Gavin.
