Shoe Tag Fund
Begun in 1938, The Shoe Tag program distributes "Tags" or vouchers to Washington County children in need of shoes. The tags are redeemable for any type of shoe at local participating stores. To date, more than 12,000 pairs of shoes have been distributed to children in need - right here in Washington County!
The Shoe Tags can be redeemed for daily-use shoes or specialty/athletic shoes, even steel-toed work wear for those students studying a trade. The tags are distributed through the individual schools as well as the Washington County Career Center, Eve Inc., and Children's Services. If you know a child in need of shoes, please contact that child's school or preschool directly.
We are proud to partner with these retailers where families can redeem the tags for shoes:
Walmart (Marietta, OH store)
The Shoe Dept (Marietta, OH and Grand Central Mall locations)
The Workingman's Store
Our Fall Auction, the only fundraiser for our Shoe Tag Program, has been CANCELLED this year due to COVID-19. Please consider donating directly to The Shoe Tag Fund to help us continue to provide SHOES for hundreds of children in Washington County.
