CARROLL’s Founder and CEO Donates 600 Pairs of Sneakers to Youth in Miami
Hundreds of children receive free shoes; initiative led by CARROLL’s founder and CEO
August 31 was a special day for hundreds of school-aged children in Miami! Patrick Carroll, founder and CEO of CARROLL, continued his philanthropic efforts by donating 600 pairs of sneakers to Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade. The youth members were surprised with a pizza party, t-shirts, and a local artist painting a custom mural as they got to pick out new shoes for the school year ahead. Celebrity guests included Benjamin Kicks (aka the Sneaker Don) who rolled up in a custom Brinks truck filled with all the shoes, plus TV personalities Phaedra Parks, Captain Lee, and Dean Muhtadi.
In June, CEO Patrick CARROLL attended a fundraiser in New York and personally donated $1.5 million to C.A.R.E. for Special Children, a Brooklyn-based nonprofit dedicated to helping families of children with special needs. This donation came on the heels of donating a combined total of $200,000 to the Heart Fund, an international nonprofit focused on fighting cardiovascular disease in developing countries, and Jesuit High School, his alma mater. In addition to being a hands-on CEO, Patrick Carroll prioritizes philanthropic efforts and continues to seek out opportunities to help younger generations succeed.
We are so grateful to everyone who played a role in the Miami event’s success. It is an honor for our firm to support the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of America and we look forward to bringing Kicks for Kids to another city soon!
