***Shoe Drive Extended***
We will be collecting new and used shoes to donate to Soles4Souls through this Sunday, May 5th!
Soles4Souls: Wearing Out Poverty, one pair of shoes at a time.
When someone doesn’t have shoes, it’s not just their feet that suffer. Without shoes, children are unable to attend school, adults are vulnerable to diseases, and every day millions are exposed to unsanitary conditions that can lead to sickness, and even death. Without something as basic as a good pair of shoes, people often feel hopeless and discouraged. Simply walking becomes unbearable because they don’t have a decent pair of shoes. Evansville UMC is committed to helping people get back on their feet because everyone deserves a good pair of shoes!
Soles4Souls has a simple concept: “We procure shoes and get them to those in need”.
Soles4Souls collects new and used shoes to give relief to the victims of abject suffering and to support micro-business efforts to eradicate poverty. Soles4Souls receives donations from footwear companies, retailers, churches, nonprofit ministries, civic groups, schools, and individuals. These donations go to the people who desperately need footwear.
We will be collecting new and used shoes to donate to Soles4Souls on Sunday, April 28th, 2019 during worship service. Please, check your closets and shoe racks for shoes you are no longer using and remember, even one shoe will make a difference – for those who only have one foot. Thanks for helping this simple, but very important ministry!
