ABOUT HAPPY FEET BALL
The Charities Guild of Northern Kentucky's (CGNK) annual Happy Feet Ball finances shoe purchases for children in need, right here in our local community. You may be surprised to learn that many children are walking to school with holes in their shoes, no socks, and no shoe strings. For more than 40 years, CGNK has provided thousands of pairs of shoes and socks to local students thanks to the support of individuals and businesses like you.
In the State of Kentucky, more than one in four children are currently living in poverty. According to the most recent data released by the U.S. Census Bureau (9/2016), Kentucky ranks as the sixth highest childhood poverty rate in the United States and is now tied for the fifth highest rate of overall poverty in the country. Poverty impacts every aspect of a child’s life. CGNK’s mission is to help provide basic needs in the form of shoes and hope our compassion can break the cycle of poverty in each child’s life we touch.
