“Not only does it give them confidence and protection from the elements, it gives them a sense of dignity to have a fresh new pair of shoes. It’s really awesome to provide them that,” said Denver Rescue Mission spokeswoman Nicole Tschette.

They were also treated to a foot-washing tradition, medical checkup and new shoes. Runner’s Roost and New Balance donated 1,000 pairs of sneakers and volunteers helped hand out the shoes.
