Please read below to find out how troops deployed to Imminent Danger Areas and Designated Combat Zones can start the process of requesting sneakers.
When we are able to fulfill a request the sneaker order forms for our offering of 9 high quality athletic shoes are sent for brand and size selection. The number of requests we can accept is based on our resources. As resources permit, we will try to support a unit throughout deployment as need arises. However, the Unit Leader will need to contact us with additional requests. Order forms will be sent when we can fulfill the additional requests.
Please note: We only accept the order forms that we have directly sent to the requesting unit or team leader/individual.
Multiple requests within the same unit, require a unit or team leader to act as a POC. We communicate with one person, a Point of Contact (POC). Shoes are sent to the POC for distribution. The POC determines those most in need and completes the forms.
Sneakers for Soldiers attempts to fill requests for all team or unit members that the POC is responsible for. Depending upon unit size and resources available at the time of request, we may have to prioritize those who are most in need.
We suggest that POC’s prioritize/determine requests based on:
- Units/teams in remote locations
- Lower ranking/junior members needing worn out sneakers replaced
- Service members with worn out sneakers
Please email your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
