Join Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® and 94.9 KLTY as we help The Shoe Bank collect shoes in a World Record attempt! Bring a pair of NEW or LIKE NEW Youth or Adult shoes and participate in The Big 'Feat' – The World’s Largest Shoe Drive, helping put much-needed shoes on families’ feet just in time for the new school year.
The current world record of ‘Most Shoes Donated to a Charity in a 24-Hour Period’ is 17,526 pairs of shoes and was achieved by Iglesias Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) in Manilla, Philippines on April 29, 2016.
Shoes collected will be donated to Rockwall-based The Shoe Bank, a non-profit providing shoes to families locally and throughout the world. Once collected and tabulated, all shoes will be redistributed by The Shoe Bank as kids go back to school.
According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, in Dallas County alone, 30% of youth 18 and under live below the poverty line, which equates to 196,000 children in need. Giving families shoes before the start of the new school year is extremely important. The world famous Ringling Bros.® Clown Alley knows they even have big shoes to fill and are up to the challenge!
