Sneakers with Soul is a nonprofit organization with a mission of providing new, quality, brand-name sneakers/athletic shoes for children and youth living in poverty at no cost to the parent/guardian or child. Our focus is serving children/youth throughout their K through 12 school-age years and do so in a manner that honors the worth and dignity of every child/youth and parent/guardian served.
Sneakers with Soul(r) (SwS) began its mission in 2010 as an outreach ministry of Manchester UMC in Manchester, MO. Since 2010, over 14,150 pairs of new sneakers/athletic shoes have been donated to children and youth living in poverty in the greater St. Louis area. In 2017, founder and president, Maurice Parisien formed a 501(c)(3) to be able to significantly impact the work of the agency. In addition to the donations of new shoes, Sneakers with Soul(r) has positively impacted the lives of volunteers by bringing them face-to-face in mission with parents/guardians and children in need to make a positive difference in the lives of both the giver, and the recipient of new shoes.
