Team Captains,

You rock! Thank you for being a part of this campaign! The first 15 teams that raise $425 or more, will have a shoe shelf at Small Sums named after them. (See photo) Be sure to not only send the link to your team page, but also put it on your Facebook page and any other social media you use.

Thank you again,

Terre, Joyce, Bridget, Taren, Greg and the Small Sums board and mostly the Small Sums clients that you are helping

“It’s funny how one pair of shoes is going to change our lives. We so appreciate you all." - Natosha J

When Natosha landed a warehouse job, she was offered a higher paying position than the one she originally applied for but she had to have steel-toe boots to take that job; she didn’t have the money for the boots. But because Small Sums was ready and could provide those boots, she walked into her first day of training with head high, boots on, and ready to start earning the paychecks that are going to allow her and her daughter to get out of the family shelter where they are staying and into an apartment of their own.

Small Sums: What we do.

Small Sums does one simple and powerful thing to help homeless individuals, who’ve just found a job, take the job and get back to more stable lives. With our practical and timely assistance, that few other agencies provide, we remove obstacles that often prevent homeless workers from being able to take a job. Each week, we help with required work clothes, bus passes, trade tools, and work shoes and work boots.

Small Sums: Why we do it.

We believe gainful employment is a key factor in helping homeless individuals get out of their homeless situation.

And we believe that helping those who have fallen on hard times, with what THEY need to take care of things THEMSELVES- to go back to work, to make enough money to have a place of their own, to support themselves – it’s what's so practical and powerful in what Small Sums does.

It’s a surprisingly simple solution that is practical and economical and it fosters the important role of self-sufficiency in helping them get into places of their own. Our clients want to work and our program is committed to supporting their resiliency and efforts. Small Sums gives homeless workers the ability to say “yes” to a job and put them back on the path to a more stable life and being productive community members and taxpayers again.

Small Sums: What we need right now!

This year, we’ll help more than 600 homeless workers with what they need to take the jobs they’ve found. Most of them will need required work shoes and because most of our clients work in food service, warehouses, or construction we know that we’re going to need about 500 pair of black no-skid shoes and about 100 pair of steel-toe boots. We've built a wall of shelves in our office kitchen for the shoes; will you help keep it full?

Will you be that "someone" who steps in and helps our clients with what they need to turn things around?

    Hey team people, there are eight days left for the Walk a Mile campaign and if we don't raise another $970, we will not meet the $6100 matching grant! Can you do a final push with your team efforts?

    Hi team leaders, since it's all rainy I think instead of grilling, gardening, and jet-skiing they are checking the emails and Facebook, so I'd like to encourage you to do some outreach for your Walk A Mile team fundraising. Let's get the momentum going! Thanks so much for your help. Terre
