SAN BERNARDINO – DaVita, a healthcare services provider, has made a donation this month of 650 pairs of new shoes in partnership with the Shoes That Fit charity to the San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools’ Homeless Education program.
The effort is part of a national campaign by the Fortune 500 company to provide shoes, and so far this year, DaVita has donated more than 12,800 shoes.
“We are very appreciative of the donation by DaVita and the work it is doing with Shoes That Fit,” said Brenda Dowdy of the County Schools’ Homeless Education program.
San Bernardino County has a homeless student population of more than 30,400 among its 33 school districts. The shoes donated by DaVita are being distributed to assist schools and districts across San Bernardino County.
“It is our honor to be able to work with San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools to help those who are most in need,” said Lauren Moughon of DaVita.
DaVita is the dialysis division of DaVita HealthCare Partners, Inc., which provides health care services across the United States and abroad.
