With Spring comes Spring Cleaning. As you've de cluttered your closets have you found gently worn shoes that you no longer need? Well, we need them! From now until June 11th we're holding our annual shoe drive for Soles4Soles. When people lack the resources to get through today, it's difficult for them to focus on tomorrow. Soles4Souls turns shoes into opportunities for education and employment so they can have a more hopeful future.
What shoes can we donate?
All styles, types and sizes of shoes, as long as they are gently worn (no holes or tears) - even mismatched shoes!
How do we donate our shoes?
Bring your shoes to church, rubber band pairs of shoes together (please don't tie the strings) and put them in the collection box by the entry door to Conklin Hall.
Where do the shoes we donate go?
All of the shoes from our drive will go into micro-enterprise programs in developing countries around the world. These programs serve as long-term opportunities to break the cycle of poverty for those in need. When the shoes arrive, they are sorted and, together with our partners, we determine where they need to be sent to make the most impact.
Does this cost the church anything?
No. The Zappos Foundation provides free shipping for all collected shoes.
So clean out those closets, bring your shoes and let's make a difference for those in need!
