Once all the shoes were loaded into a truck, Malaak and Erica drove to New York's Henry Street Settlement to make a special delivery.

"One thing I love about Henry Street Settlement, it is not just a homeless organization," Malaak says. "Their goal is to get them into jobs and back into permanent housing."

Inside the shelter, women gathered around to receive their new shoes. Verona, the shelter's executive director, says many of these women fled dangerous situations and arrived with nothing but the clothes on their backs. "Thank you so much for thinking of the people that we serve," she says. "We have a lot of need in this community and, particularly, in our shelters."
