About Our Hearts to Your Soles
Our Hearts to Your Soles was founded by Matthew Conti, while a high school student in the North Allegheny School District located near the city of Pittsburgh, with the help of his father Dr. Stephen Conti, an orthopedic surgeon at Allegheny General Hospital. After volunteering for the summer at Allegheny General Hospital and seeing the problems that can be caused by improper footwear, Matt decided to start a non-profit organization that provides free medical foot screening examinations and shoes to the less fortunate people of the metropolitan Pittsburgh area. Because other programs provided clothing but not shoes to the needy, he saw a great need for their organization.
