This is, without a doubt, one of our favorite traditions. Every year, to commemorate the birth of our co-founder, Jennifer Fitzgerald, friends and supporters Dennis & Leslie Smith treat all the kids in our program to a brand new pair of shoes.
It's a wonderful and welcome gift for our little ones and a fitting way to honor Jennifer. Thanks, Dennis & Leslie!

Union Pacific has been a long time supporter of Children Today, giving its first donation in 2009. This year's donation marks the 9th and largest amount awarded from the foundation. We are extremely grateful to Union Pacific and Andy Perez for their consistent support and annual giving to our organization.
