FOOD CITY donates $50,000 to Happy Shoes Project


Representatives of FOOD CITY continued their ongoing support of the Happy Shoes Project by making a $50,000 donation on Thursday, May 25 at Erlanger Hospital in conjunction with the launch of the Happy Shoes Kids Division.

HAPPY SHOES was born in the heart of Sandi Sammons through her life process of overcoming colon cancer.  

After being diagnosed with Stage 4 Adenocarcinoma (colon cancer) on August 26, 2015, Sandi began the process of walking out her healing. Throughout the process of treatment and emersion in the Word of God, her HAPPY SHOES inspirational post was birthed. Sandi always loved nice shoes. One day while sitting in her treatment chair, she was inspired to write about the shoes (red and white leather tennis shoes) she was wearing. She took a picture of them and wrote her first post and captioned it, “My Happy shoes for the day!” 

This was the beginning of what is now the HAPPY SHOES PROJECT.  Sandi transitioned to heaven on April 27, 2017, and today we carry on The HAPPY SHOES Project to honor her life and legacy. We hope you are inspired each day with hope, peace, joy and strength to put on your HAPPY SHOES and keep walking.  The HAPPY SHOES Project inspires cancer patients to keep walking with encouragement, support, and inspiration distributing totes filled with items to make cancer treatment more comfortable and positive.
