Shoes That Fit Announces Generous Donation by Philanthropists Filipp Chebotarev and Polina Chebotareva of Cambridge Companies SPG That Put a Pair of New Shoes on the Foot of Every Child at Matt Kelly Elementary School in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Highly respected and iconic investment firm Cambridge Companies,
headquartered in Newport Beach, CA and Las Vegas, NV, has provided a
generous donation to provide approximately 300 pairs of new shoes to all
students of Matt Kelly Elementary of Las Vegas. “We’re pleased to
partner with Matt Kelly Elementary and Shoes That Fit, a partnership
that empowered so many children and provided discernable social impact
in our community. New shoes not only provide security and comfort, they
also provide confidence to a child and that translates into many other
aspects of life. It’s highly important for kids to feel confident as it
helps them perform better at school and achieve their goals,” says
Filipp Chebotarev, Partner at Cambridge Companies.

“It’s been a rewarding experience to see so many smiles. These kids are
going to grow up to be leaders in our community, it’s a sincere pleasure
to be of service and give back,” says Polina Chebotareva, Partner at
Cambridge Companies.

“It has been a joy working with Cambridge Companies to benefit the
students at Matt Kelly Elementary,” said Amy Fass, Executive Director of
Shoes That Fit. “Tragically, more than one in five children in the U.S.
lives in poverty; too many families have to make a choice between food
and providing shoes for their children. Children who wear shoes that are
too small, falling apart, or belong to other family members experience
enormous embarrassment and shame, often avoiding school altogether. But
a brand new pair of shoes that fit can help a child attend school with
fewer behavioral problems, interact more with their teachers and peers,
and participate in sports and other physical activities. Most of all,
new shoes boost a child’s self-esteem, and helps them understand that
someone cared enough to make a difference for them.”

“We appreciate Cambridge Companies and Shoes That Fit for helping the
students at our school with new shoes. Now as summer approaches our
students will have shoes that fit for the end of the school year, into
our summer school program, and then summer vacation. It is wonderful to
work with generous and caring community partners such as the Cambridge
Companies. It is through partnerships such as this that our students
benefit from the kindness of others. Thank you to Filipp Chebotarev and
Polina Chebotareva for their kind donation to Matt Kelly Elementary
School,” said Dawn Blinder, School Counselor from Matt Kelly Elementary
